Battle of Saltillo May 20, 1914
Either the Anishinabe Confederation recaptured the important Mexican city of Saltillo, which is located in the Mexican State of Coahuila, to the southwest of Monterrey, or the Americans and Mexicans advanced to Saltillo from Monterey, and captured the city from the Anishinabe Army. Anishinabe soldiers likely came from the Chihuahua region and also the Coahuila region, to defend Saltillo. They obviously knew the Americans and Mexicans were building up their strength in the Monterey region. By this time the Anishinabe Confederation of northern Mexico, was in control of all of Chihuahua; much of Coahuila; all of Durango; nearly all of Sonora; much of Sinaloa; and parts of Zacatecas. They also controlled much of southern Mexico.
