July 12, 1870 Battle of Little Wichita
This battle was fought near the Oklahoma-Texas border. A force of nearly 300 Anishinabe soldiers were still at war against the white invaders and probably defending a road which led from Kansas to Mexico. A force of 55 white soldiers including Captain Curwen B. McClellan and 1 civilian, were out of their fortification known as Fort Richardson, looking to start trouble with the Anishinabe people of the Oklahoma-Texas region who were still using the road from Kansas to Mexico. It was only another raid by the American soldiers. After leaving their fort they discovered a force of over 100 Anishinabe soldiers near what is now Seymour, Texas. Once they knew that the Anishinabe soldiers were within reach the white soldiers launched an attack against them. However, they were forced to abandon their assault and return to Fort Richardson. White casualties were 3 killed and 12 wounded. Anishinabe casualties were obviously higher because the whites had the superior weapons. The road to Mexico was still an open one.
