The March 29, 1813 Battle of Rosillo Creek
After bringing Mexico City and Guadalajara (two of the largest cities in Mexico) under their control, Anishinabe soldiers next brought Oaxaca and Acapulco under their control. That means nearly all of the south of Mexico was now under Anishinabe control. However, the whites had yet to capitulate and English whites commenced to intervene on behalf on their white Spanish kinfolk. On March 29, 1813, the next phase in this war commenced just south of San Antonio, Texas. This is when the English intervened to support the Spanish whites. Involved was the north of Mexico including New Mexico and Texas. You will come across historical information claiming that whites from England, the United States, and other white countries allied with the Mexican insurgents. Don't believe that. It is absolutely ridiculous to even think Anishinabe soldiers and Anglo-American soldiers, would fight against the whites. What really occurred was a call for English military support from the English colonies of Canada and the United States, from the Spanish whites of Mexico who were about to lose control over almost all of Mexico, including New Mexico and Texas. The Anglo-Americans were led by Samuel Kemper and Augustus Magee.
In the battle that followed, Anishinabe soldiers captured Nacogdoches on August 7, 1812, or during the so called War of 1812, which means both these conflicts (the Mexican War For Independence and the War of 1812) were the same war. Anishinabe soldiers then laid siege to Presidio La Bahia. That occurred between December 7, 1812 and February 19, 1813. It forced the whites to retreat to their fort at San Antonio. On March 29, 1813, the whites planned an ambush of Anishinabe soldiers near the Rosillo Creek. Before the whites could launch their assault, Anishinabe scouts discovered their position. What followed was an hour long battle in which the Anishinabe soldiers defeated the 1,500 Anglo-American and Spanish white soldiers. White casualties were estimated at between 100 and 330 killed and many more wounded. Those white soldiers who survived the battle retreated back to San Antonio. They then were forced to surrender San Antonio to the Anishinabe Army on April 1, 1813. After the surrender, 12 of the leaders of the hostiles, were executed by Anishinabe soldiers.
