Battle of San Patricio
On February 27, 1836, Anishinabe soldiers won their first battle in the so called Texas War of Independence. According to historians one Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, led a force of some 6,000 soldiers to Texas, to battle the rebel white Texans. We will be cautious about the historical figure known as Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, because he was possibly in an alliance with the English or Anglos. However, a force of 6,000 Anishinabe soldiers battling the rebel white Texans is believable, because southern Mexico had a large Anishinabe population at the time, as did northern Mexico. A force of some 70 rebel white Texans led by James Grant, Frank W. Johnson, and Robert C. Morris, had intentions on attacking the settlement of Matamoros which today borders the Texas city of Brownsville. On February 27, 1836, a force of Anishinabe soldiers discovered the small force of rebel white Texans at an abandoned white settlement known as San Patricio. Instead of attacking the rebel white Texan camp during daylight, Anishinabe soldiers were instructed to attack the camp at 3.30 a.m. Once they launched their assault on the camp, a battle followed which lasted several hours. When it was over, 20 of the rebel Texans were killed, an unknown number were wounded, and another 32 were captured. Anishinabe casualties were 1 killed and 4 wounded. A total of 500 Anishinabe soldiers battled the 70 rebel Texans in this battle.
