The Battle of Stuartís Pond November 27, 1813


This battle was fought near where present day Annapolis, Maryland is situated. Annapolis was located less than 50 miles east of Washington D.C., and was pivotal to Anishinabe military commanders for eventually destroying Washington D.C. On a pond located on the west bank of the Chesapeake Bay, a force of brave Anishinabe soldiers landed their war canoes, then encountered a small force of probably 90 or so white soldiers. In the battle that followed, it is very likely that the Anishinabe soldiers completely annihilated (killed them all) the force of 90 white soldiers. They knew they could destroy Washington D.C. by this time.
