Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
April 8, 1814 Battle of Quechereguas
This battle is also considered by historians to have been yet another battle of the so called Chilean War for Independence but was really just another battle for control of South America, between the Anishinabe Army and army of the white confederation led by England. Though the war for control of the Pacific Coast of South America was not going well for the Anishinabe Army and the army of the white confederation, Anishinabe ogimak yet thought they would try to capture the Spanish capital at Santiago. Historians claim Santiago was controlled by the patriots at the time but we know better. In the following battle, many a soldier from the white confederation had left Talca to defend Santiago from an impending Anishinabe assault on the Spanish capital of Santiago. A force of Anishinabe soldiers were marching towards Santiago when they were attacked by many a soldier from the white confederation led by England. The Anishinabe soldiers lost this battle, while afterwards the soldiers from the white confederation split with one going back to Talca, and the other to reinforce Santiago.
