The Battle of Malcom’s Mills November 6, 1814
This battle was fought near where present day Oakland, Ontario is situated. The battle was only a brief skirmish between a force of a few hundred Anishinabe soldiers and a larger force of about 850 white soldiers under the command of Lieutenant Bostwick. The white military force marched from the Fort Detroit region, with orders to attack Anishinabe populations between Detroit and the western end of Lake Ontario. Bostwick’s soldiers were met by a force of brave Anishinabe soldiers near Brant’s Ford, and a short indecisive battle followed in which the commander of the white soldiers, Lieutenant Bostwick, changed his plans then ordered his soldiers to march southwards towards the north shores of Lake Erie, to launch raids on Anishinabe populations living in that region. From their scouts, Anishinabe ogimak learned of the danger within their domain then ordered scores of their brave soldiers to assemble to meet the danger that was threatening the Anishinabe population in that region. In the short battle that followed at Malcom’s Mills, which was 9 miles south of Brant’s Ford, the white military force drove off the smaller Anishinabe military force. Few casualties occurred in the battle.
After the battle the white military force under Lieutenant Bostwick’s command, continued to launch raids throughout that region, then returned back to Fort Detroit. After the battle, Anishinabe ogimak from the Michigan, New York, Ohio, Ontario, and Quebec regions unanimously agreed to end the war against the more numerous and better armed whites. They had endured a great many casualties defending their beloved land against a people who refused to deal with them in a brave, honorable, and lawful manner. Almost half the battles fought in the northern battles of this war, were fought in Ontario. In all, a total of 17 battles were fought in Anishinabe Ontario. After agreeing to end the war, Anishinabe ogimak eventually met with white leaders and ceded their land in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, southern Michigan, southern Ontario, and southern Wisconsin. The whites left the Anishinabe people with much of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, extreme northern Wisconsin, the land between and north of, Lake Simcoe in Ontario and Kingston, Ontario, including all land north of Lake Superior.
