The August 4, 1859 Battle of the Colorado River
After the 3 important Anishinabe ogimak (leaders) made their escape out of Fort Yuma, they were enraged enough to seek to retaliate against the American Terrorists. On August 4, 1859, a force of supposedly 50 (most likely they numbered in the 100s) American soldiers, met and battled a force of some 200 Anishinabe soldiers about 12 miles south of the American camp located near Beale's Crossing. In the battle that followed, the Americans were victorious. Around 23 Anishinabe soldiers were killed and an unknown number wounded. Only 3 American casualties occurred. All 3 were wounded. The Americans resorted to using terrorist tactics to defeat the Anishinabe people of the region where Arizona, California, and Nevada meet. After defeating the Anishinabe people, the Americans held negotiations with them in which they requested they be allowed to construct Fort Mohave, which is in Arizona, and they agreed to set aside nearly all the southern California desert to be a Reservation for the Anishinabe people and their allies. Thus, ended the Mohave War, and the reason the southern California desert has no official land cession. Since the Anishinabe people and their allies, were capable of raising at least 1,500 soldiers, we can get an estimated Anishinabe population in the Arizona, California, and Nevada region where this war occurred, of over 20,000.
