The Battle of the Clouds September 16, 1777
With the victory on September 11, 1777 a part of history, the whites once again organized their force of close to 30,000 soldiers, for more battles against the brave Anishinabe soldiers. If they thought that the Anishinabek would excuse themselves from the war they were wrong! From just south of the Philadelphia region (the large white military force had sailed up from both the Chesapeake Bay and Delaware Bay to reach the Philadelphia region), the large white military force was heading towards Philadelphia, which prompted Anishinabe commanders to order several thousand of their brave soldiers to reach the large white military force to commence to battle them. Once they reached the large white military force a battle between them commenced, but shortly after the battle started a steady rain began to fall (the reason for the name of the battle) then it turned into a downpour. After the heavier rains started the English obviously ordered their ammunition to be covered in order to protect their supply of gunpowder. Their obvious goal was to first protect their supply of ammunition and weapons instead of fighting an all out battle. They instead chose to retreat in order to preserve their supply of ammunition. It is not known what the casualties of the short battle were. After the storm had stopped many Anishinabe soldiers were ordered by their commanders to harass the advancing large white military force of nearly 30,000 soldiers, which was having great difficulties advancing towards Philadelphia. The recent rains had made road travel extremely difficult.
