Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
The Battle of Saint Pierre March 25, 1776
By late March of 1776, the Anishinabek had sent reinforcements to the war zone in central and eastern Quebec, to combat the white invaders. On the 25th of that month, a small battle took place near Saint Pierre which didnít have any significant impact in the war. In the battle that occurred some of the English and French sought safety in a farmhouse, but were attacked by the Anishinabek. Within a short while the whites in the farmhouse (some 330 of them) capitulated to the Indian victors. Evidently very few casualties occurred. Around 11 whites were killed and one was wounded. However, those whites captured (318 of them) were probably killed later on.
