The Battle of Groton Heights September 6, 1781
In the north the war was about over. However, the Anishinabe Nation had yet to capitulate to the more numerous and better armed whites, who were now in command of the war. They now had easy access to Anishinabe land to their west, and they were almost through with battling the southern Anishinabek. Nearly 1,900 white soldiers under the command of Benedict Arnold, from a new fort named Fort Trumbull, which was constructed to defend English sailing vessels from Anishinabe raiders, as well as another nearby fort named Fort Griswold, got into a battle with a smaller force of brave Anishinabe soldiers who were in the forts vicinity to attempt to capture the ammunition and food supplies of the whites. In the battle that followed, the larger and better armed white military force were defeated by the brave Anishinabe soldiers. With the surprise Anishinabe attacks occurring early on the morning of September 6, 1781, came an all out effort by the Anishinabek to destroy the town of Groton. After learning they were being attacked, the towns citizens evacuated for safer havens. The Anishinabek captured much of the towns ammunition and food supplies. They then attempted to capture Fort Griswold, which turned into a minor disaster for the brave Anishinabek. After commencing their assault on the white fort, they were met with the load sounds of cannon fire and gun fire, from the white soldiers in, and around the fort. However, for some reason they were capable of managing to enter the fort. After a group of brave Anishinabe soldiers forcefully took the cannons of their white enemies, THEY then used them on them. In the battle the white casualties were 136 killed and 202 wounded. The Anishinabek successfully carried out their military mission, but they knew the war was about over. This battle was fought about 90 miles east of New York City, near what is now Groton and New London, Connecticut. It was the last time Anishinabe soldiers attacked a white settlement along the northern east coast in this war.
