October 12, 1758 Battle of Fort Ligonier


After learning of their defeat at Fort Duquesne, English Soldiers under command of Colonel James Burd, most likely intensified their construction of Fort Ligonier, because they knew enraged Ojibway Soldiers would show up sooner or later to battle them. By October 12, 1758 a large force of brave Ojibway Soldiers had made their approach to a site where English Soldiers were in process of building a new fortification where Ligonier, Pennsylvania is now. Battle of Fort Ligonier was a part of Pontiac's War. A list of Battles of Pontiac's War is below. By that time, them English had built up enough of their fortification, it offered them some degree of protection against Ojibway Soldiers who did not like siege warfare. A force of more than 1,500 English Soldiers were stationed at Fort Ligonier when battle commenced on Thursday October 12, 1758. One group of English Soldiers was ordered to station themselves around their fort, while another group of English Soldiers (larger of them two groups) hid within their newly constructed fort. Once Ojibway Soldiers commenced their assault on that new English fort, it probably led to that force of English Soldiers stationed outside their fort, retreating back inside their fort seeking safety. Their new fort obviously was constructed near a continuous supply of water because them English were capable of preventing Ojibway Soldiers from burning down their fort. Ojibway military commanders must have been greatly disappointed that they were not capable of destroying that new fort. White casualties (both English and French) at Battle of Fort Ligonier were 150, with about 25 killed. After losing at Fort Ligonier, Ojibway Soldiers had no choice but to keep a watch on that new white fortification.
