Battle of Lacolle November 7, 1838
A few months after the Short Hills Raid, another group of Anishinabe people from New York, New Hampshire, and Vermont made an attempt to escape to the north of Canada. Their movements were discovered and a force of several hundred white soldiers attempted to halt their exodus. Anishinabe soldiers numbered anywhere from 200 to 400 in this battle they won. White casualties were 8 killed and an unknown number wounded. Anishinabe casualties were 2 killed and an unknown number wounded. This group of Anishinabe people may have numbered more than 10,000. They successfully escaped to northern Quebec and possibly Greenland. The battle was fought just south of Montreal, Canada.
