The Battle of Paulus Hook August 19, 1779
Not yet accepting defeat, the few remaining brave Anishinabe soldiers in the New Jersey and New York City region, battled a small group of white soldiers at a white fort where Jersey City is now located, which is near New York City. Under the cover of darkness, the brave Anishinabe soldiers launched their surprise attack on the white military fort. They discovered an unprotected entrance into the fort then stormed in. In the short battle that followed, the whites could not organize themselves well enough to withstand the surprise Anishinabe attack. About 50 whites were killed and wounded and another 158 captured. As soon as the light of the morning came the Anishinabek departed from the fort with the captured whites and probably large amounts of ammunition and weapons they fort contained. They likely killed their captured white soldiers later on. Before this battle was foght another battle was fought in Maine. The July 24 - August 12, 1779 Battle of Penobscot, did not go well for the Anishinabe soldiers who tried to destroy a white fort near the Maine coast. They were driven off by the white soldiers in the fort and by 1,500 reinforcements. Some 487 white soldiers were killed, wounded, or captured in the battle.
