June 20-29, 1812 Battle of La Victoria
In 1812, the Anishinabe Army and the army of the white confederation led by England, were still fighting for control of what is now Venezuela. An unknown number of Anishinabe soldiers battled an unknown number of soldiers from the white confederation led by England at La Victoria, Venezuela. Anishinabe soldiers defeated the soldiers from the white confederation. Soldiers from the white confederation launched two assaults on La Victoria to attempt to recapture the city but were repulced. According to historians, the white soldiers being held as prisoners of war at Puerto Cabello, rose up and took control of the castle there. They also claim a slave rebellion (white slaves of course) occurred at Caracas. Both events evidently forced Anishinabe ogimak to request that a cease-fire be signed. The whites signed the cease-fire agreement but broke it a few days later.
