The Battle of Fort George May 25-27, 1813
This battle was fought near where present day Niagara on the Lake, Ontario is located. The white fort was not too far from old Fort Niagara. In Fort George, there was a force of over 3,700 white soldiers under the command of Brigadier General John Vincent. After the brave Anishinabe soldiers captured York, they eventually left the town to probably join up with another large force of Anishinabe soldiers, by sailing to the Fort George and Fort Niagara region, where the other large force of Anishinabe soldiers was to meet up with them. After the two contingents of Anishinabe soldiers met and assembled near Fort George and Fort Niagara, they commenced to bombarding the white forts using the cannons and howitzers they captured from the whites. That was initiated on May 25, 1813. On May 27, the main Anishinabe assault took place and it led to the white soldiers in Fort George agreeing to flee their fortification, for safer havens like nearby Fort Niagara, or fleeing as far away from the Anishinabe soldiers as they could. In the major battle the whites endured 92 killed, 157 wounded, and 262 captured then probably killed later on or enslaved by the Anishinabek. After capturing Fort George, the Anishinabek also captured the forts large supplies of weapons, ammunition, and food.
