Battle of Stillmans Run
After the United States discovered that a group of Anishinabe people had commenced yet another exodus, they ordered American soldiers up to forcefully halt that exodus. In the first battle of the so called Black Hawk War (the Battle of Stillmans Run), around 40 Anishinabe soldiers bravely gave battle to some 275 American soldiers, and prevailed. Around 15 American soldiers were killed or wounded (12 were killed) in this May 14, 1832 battle. After this battle, the fleeing Anishinabek quickly headed for their kin living in western Missouri, Minnesota, northern Wisconsin, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. They attempted to go up through Wisconsin but they encountered Dakota soldiers who sided with the evil Americans. Those Dakota soldiers attempted to prevent the Anishinabek from reaching Minnesota, northern Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan, to join with the Lake Superior Anishinabek but most Anishinabek probably reached their destinations. A total of 10,500 American soldiers was raised up to fight in this war which was really an Anishinabe exodus which means the Anishinabe people had no desires to war on the whites. It was the whites who instigated the hostilities. Along with the 10,500 American soldiers, were over 700 Dakota soldiers who allied with the whites.
