The Battle of Springfield June 23, 1780
Most certainly very upset with the continued stiff resistance the brave Anishinabe soldiers were putting up between the New York City and Philadelphia region, the whites once again assembled their soldiers (4,600 of them) to combat the force of brave Anishinabe soldiers in between New York City and Philadelphia. It is discouraging to have to read of white historians accounts of what they think occurred back in June of 1780. They are adamant that the English Americans had already driven the English out of the Philadelphia region, which is worse than speculation. It is even worse to read that those white historians claim that the English force of 4,600 soldiers, was going to attempt to recapture Philadelphia. The English had already captured Philadelphia from the brave Anishinabek back in 1777. It was the continued Anishinabe raids in between the New York City and Philadelphia region, that led to the English and Germans raising their military force up to attempt to stop the war in that region. On June 23, 1780, at Springfield, New Jersey, the brave Anishinabe soldiers battled the larger white military force and prevailed. After the English and Germans initiated an attack on the Anishinabek, the Anishinabek fell back to put up a good defense until the reinforcements their commanders assured them of, arrived. Once the new Indian reinforcements arrived, they intensified their attack on their white enemies, which resulted in the white military force retreating from the battle to escape from the obviously well carried out battle plans of the Anishinabek. White casualties in the battle were about 50 to 60 killed, and about 115 wounded.
