The Battle of the Cedars May 15, 1776
With the English of Quebec recently being reinforced, the English began to actively fight the Anishinabek who had taken the French city of Montreal earlier but only for a short while. The Battle of the Cedars took place about 28 miles west of Montreal in Anishinabe country. The target of the Anishinabek was Fort Cedars which was recently reinforced by the whites and their Iroquois allies. On May 16, the Anishinabek assaulted Fort Cedars which led to an early capitulation by the small white military force in the white fortification. A few days later on May 20, a relief force of English and French soldiers approached Fort Cedars, then were ambushed by the Anishinabek. A few days after the Anishinabek defeated the relief force sent to Fort Cedars, another English relief force under the command of Benedict Arnold was sent to the Fort Cedars area. Arnold met with his enemy and their prisoners before ever reaching the fort, then decided to not aid the English prisoners of the Indians. Arnold instead led his small military force back to Montreal. Of the nearly 1,200 soldiers of the English (that includes their Iroquois allies), 8 were killed and 30 wounded during the battles, and around 400 were taken as POWS. As for how many of the English, French, and Iroquois POWS of the Anishinabek who were killed and enslaved while in captivity, is unknown but many were definitely killed later on.
