September 14, 1758 Battle of Fort Duquesne

This battle was fought on Thursday September 14, 1758. Around 842 English Soldiers were given orders to patrol around Fort Duquesne to attempt to learn of "supposed" French plans for protecting their fortification, but they accidentally got into a major battle with Ojibways Soldiers who were keeping a watch on movements of their English and French enemies. Fort Duquesne was a part of Pontiac's War. A list of Battles of Pontiac's War is below. Around 1,200 English and French Soldiers were stationed at Fort Duquesne which was located at what is now Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. French Soldiers had built that fort in 1754 to strengthen English and French military forces in western Pennsylvania. At that time (1750s) Ojibway Soldiers controlled that entire region up to Adirondack Mountains and further east. Ojibway Soldiers learned that some 6,000 English Soldiers were trekking to Fort Duquesne to bolster numbers of white soldiers in that location. A force of 850 English Soldiers led by Major James Grant, were instructed to explore around Fort Duquesne to determine how strong an Ojibway military presence around Fort Duquesne was. English Soldiers made a mistake by initiating battle with a large number of Ojibway Soldiers near Fort Duquesne. Ojibway Soldiers defeated their English enemies after they commenced to battle them. Survivors fled to Fort Ligonier. Ojibway Soldiers killed 125 English and French Soldiers and wounded 228. They then destroyed Fort Duquesne. However, that large English military force was yet in that area and they later on built Fort Pitt where Fort Duquesne was.
