May 18, 1811 Battle of Las Piedras
Historians claim that this battle was one of the battles fought for Uruguay Independence. That is incorrect however. This battle was one of the many battles fought between the Anishinabe Army and the army of the white confederation led by England. In May of 1810, Anishinabe soldiers had forced the whites (they be Spanish of course) to abandon Buenos Aries. They retreated to Montevideo which is due east of Buenos Aries, where they were supported militarily by the white confederation led by England. Montevideo offered the whites better opportunities to defend themselves against the Anishinabe soldiers who frequently launched raids on the region around Buenos Aries, from the north. They could reach Montevideo easier, faster, and safer using the Rio de la Plata, than using the Rio de la Plata to reach Buenos Aries. Thus, the reason they selected Montevideo to be the location used in this war. Though the white confederation had moved their military headquarters from Buenos Aries to Montevideo, that didn't stop Anishinabe ogimak from sending their brave soldiers to the Montevideo region to battle the white invaders. At this battle, the soldiers of the white confederation numbered some 1,230 but around 200 defected to the Anishinabe Army during the battle, which means something either went wrong in the battle (a defeat looming), or many of the soldiers from the white confederation were Indian and mixed bloods. Anishinabe soldiers numbered around 1,000. On May 18, 1811, both military forces battled near Las Piedras, and the Anishinabe soldiers won. However, the whites continued to control the Montevideo region, which means they still controlled the Rio de la Plata.
