The Battle of Paoli September 21, 1777
Back in the Pennsylvania region, more fighting occurred on September 21, 1777, between a force of 3,700 white soldiers and a smaller force of brave Anishinabe soldiers, near Malvern, Pennsylvania. This battle was part of the whites Philadelphia Campaign, which was initiated to bring the Philadelphia region back under white control. Those 3,700 white soldiers were a part of the large 30,000 man strong military force of the whites who had sailed up from the south, by way of Chesapeake Bay and Delaware Bay. Not to mention the 15,000 to 20,000 white soldiers led by William Howe, to the Philadelphia region. The whites had nearly 50,000 soldiers in the Philadelphia region. They did so to avoid any possible Indian raids south of New York City. Under the command of British Major General Charles Grey, the 3,700 white soldiers arrived near Malvern late on the night of September 20, 1777 with the intentions of launching a surprise attack on a force of Anishinabe soldiers in the vicinity. Early during the morning hours of September 21, while it was still dark, the whites surprised attacked the sleeping Anishinabe soldiers, ruining their sleep. All the Anishinabe soldiers could do was grab what weapons they could find then put up a good defense from the surprise attack of their white enemies. They ended up fleeing from the surprise attack of their enemies. Many escaped but many more were killed or wounded and, sadly, captured which likely led to their murders. White casualties were 57 killed, 118 wounded, and 71 captured, then probably killed later on.
