The June 1788 Battle of the Pinal Mountains
Just another minor battle between Anishinabe soldiers who controlled the Sonora (Arizona region) region and a force of white soldiers bent on retaliating against Anishinabe soldiers who had probably been busy laying beatings on the white settlers who dared to farm outside their forts. In this battle, a force of 208 white soldiers led by Captain Pablo Romero, commenced a retalitory campaign against the Anishinabe people who lived in the Pinal Mountains, between May 31, 1788 and June 24, 1788. Supposedly 15 Anishinabe men, women, and children were killed, while another 34 were captured. Only 1 white was killed and an unknown number had been wounded. After this battle, not much more in the way of battles occurred between the Anishinabe soldiers and the whites. Anishinabe soldiers were in control of the Arizona region, including the Sonora region of northern Mexico. They were primarily located in the more rugged terrain of that region but constantly sent their brave soldiers out to the lower elevations, to raid the few whites who remained in that region. Whites from England, Ireland, and Scotland, and probably other white nations, were sending their soldiers to the Arizona region as early as the 1750s but they were not capable of stopping the Anishinabe soldiers from dominating that region. That region would remain a war zone until 1886.
