Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Battle of Montgomery's Tavern December 7, 1837
This battle was fought nearly two weeks after the Battle of Saint-Charles. It was fought in Toronto, Canada. Obviously some Anishinabe people from Michigan or New York, made an attempt to escape to northern Ontario or northern Quebec. They were eventually discovered by the whites yet they bravely made the decision to battle them in order to allow for the large numbers of Anishinabe people they had promised to bring to the north of Canada, to actually make it there. White soldiers numbered over 1,000, while the Anishinabe soldiers and civilians numbered 210. The battle was won by the whites but many Anishinabe people made their escape up to either northern Ontario or northern Quebec and possibly Greenland. White casualties were 1 killed and 5 wounded. Anishinabe casualties were 3 killed and 5 wounded.
