The Battle of Lacolle Mills November 20, 1812
This battle was fought near where present day Champlain, Ontario is situated. The goal of the Anishinabe soldiers was to get their hands on the white villages supplies of weapons and ammunition, and the villages food supplies. A force of 1,130 white soldiers were stationed at Champlain. Early on the morning of November 20, 1812, a large force of brave Anishinabe soldiers had forced their way in to the village and captured the Lacolle Mills blockhouse. However, in the dark the Anishinabe soldiers were attacked by the white soldiers and in their frenzy to defend themselves, they accidentally fired upon each other. The white soldiers eventually learned the blunder the Anishinabe soldiers had endured, then launched a counterattack which drove the Anishinabe soldiers from the scene. However, they probably did capture significant amounts of weapons and ammunition. The Anishinabe soldiers probably endured around 5 to 10 casualties during the blunder.
