Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana

July 6-26, 1759 Battle of Fort Niagara

In 1678, French were allowed by Ojibways of Niagara Falls region, to build trading posts in that region. It may have been part of some agreement Anishinabek and French agreed to, to end certain hostilities between them. Nearly 10 years later (in 1688,) them French were forced to abandon then named Fort Conti. They left their old trading post which was really a fortified French settlement getting on Ojibway nerves, to construct a stronger fortified settlement nearby made of stone. Battle of Fort Niagara was a part of Pontiac's War. A list of Battles of Pontiac's War is below. Fort Niagara was located within Ojibway territory and they obviously singled out that fort during early stages of this conflict, to attempt to destroy it. However, Fort Niagara was obviously built strongly and located near a continuous supply of water. Ojibway Soldiers commenced their assault on Fort Niagara on Friday July 6, 1759. It would only lead to a prolonged siege which Ojibway military commanders did not like. A force of 4,000 English Soldiers and their idiotic Indian allies, had reached Fort Niagara to reinforce it. Ojibway Soldiers had to fight their English and French enemies outside Fort Niagara and assault Fort Niagara as well. Ojibway military commanders did not like siege warfare. On Thursday July 26, 1759 brave Ojibway Soldiers ended their siege against Fort Niagara. English and French casualties were 338 killed and almost 400 captured by enraged Ojibway Soldiers, who probably killed them all later on or enslaved them. They sold them back to whites atferwards.
