The Battle of North Point September 12, 1814
This battle was fought near where present day North Point, Maryland is located. A large force of white soldiers under the command of Major General Robert Ross, numbering over 7,200 soldiers, battled a contingent of the large Anishinabe military force still in the Maryland region. The whites were obviously extremely upset about their capital being burned down. On September 12, 1814, at around 1:00 pm, the battle erupted after the white commanders agreed that it was in their soldiers best interests to first attack the Anishinabe soldiers. After being attacked by the white soldiers, Anishinabe military commanders then sent for more nearby reinforcements. With their reinforcements now with them, the Anishinabe soldiers launched a counterattack on the large white military force, which inflicted heavy casualties on the white soldiers and forced them to retreat. White casualties in the major battle were 70 killed, 434 wounded, and over 50 captured then probably killed later on or enslaved by the Anishinabek. Nearby Baltimore was next.
