The Battle of New Orleans January 8, 1815
This battle was fought where the present city of New Orleans, Louisiana is located. After losing to the United States in 1814, large numbers of the citizens from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation located in Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi not only fled to Florida, they also fled westward into the Louisiana region. They probably numbered in the 10,000s, and included among their numbers, were their black allies. They knew they could enter the Louisiana region because Anishinabe people had already been living there for generations to defend Indian land. The whites early on built fortifications which eventually became cities. After reaching the Louisiana region, they singled out the city of New Orleans to attack, because they knew the city had large stores of weapons and ammunition that they badly needed and the whites were going to eventually launch assaults on them. At the time, the Anishinabek who had invaded the Caribbean Islands, had already commended the wars for liberation in Mexico. In response to the Indian uprisings in Mexico, Spanish leaders told the English whites living to their east, that they could settle down in the Mexican State of Texas, which they willingly agreed to do.
In the massive battle at New Orleans, the whites had assembled a huge army of over 23,000 soldiers to defend the city from the large army of the Southern Anishinabe Confederation, which included large numbers of black soldiers. In the battles that were fought, the whites eventually won but they paid a dear price and the Indians probably captured large quantities of weapons and ammunition. After the battle, the ogimak from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation ordered their brave soldiers to force their way into Mexico (Texas), which they eventually did. In Texas, they joined with Anishinabe people who had been living there since the mid 18th century, or possibly since the mid 17th century, if historians are correct about the Shoshone (Comanche) invading the Texas region in the 17th century, from the Montana-Wyoming region. And they continued to live in the Louisiana region after the Battle of New Oreleans. More Anishinabek from the Missouri region joined them a few years later. White casualties at the Battles at New Orleans were 2,646. Of that number, 468 were killed and 1,526 wounded. Over 600 were captured then probably killed later on or enslaved by the prophesy weary Anishinabek.
