Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
The Battle of Hubbardton July 7, 1777
After evacuating the Forts Ticonderoga and Independence region, the Anishinabek withdrew to where Hubbardton, Vermont is located to regroup and probably get rest and support from nearby Anishinabek. However, a large white military force of 2,230 soldiers was following them. The English were actively waging war in this area which was once under their control, to attempt to once again gain full control of this region. From probably their own scouts or their native Indian scouts, the English learned where the Anishinabe soldiers had taken refuge then surprised attacked them. In the battle that followed, the Anishinabe soldiers were obviously surprised that their white enemy was attacking them, but they regrouped then put up a good fight until more white reinforcements arrived. After the white reinforcements arrived they again counterattacked the brave Anishinabe soldiers who were then driven from the battle in defeat. White casualties were 101 killed, 243 wounded, and 243 captured.
