The Capture of Fort Niagara December 19, 1813
This battle was fought near where present day Youngstown, New York is situated, which is just south of Lake Ontario, and borders the Ontario border, where Fort George was situated. Anishinabe military commanders did not forget about Fort Niagara after they captured Fort George earlier in the year. They ordered several hundred of their brave soldiers to once again wage war on the white soldiers stationed at Fort Niagara, in December of 1813. On December 19, 1813, the Anishinabe military force of several hundred soldiers launched a surprise nighttime assault on the white fortification, which greatly startled the white soldiers in the fort, who had no inclination that an Indian military force had prepared to attempt to capture their fort. After the first few moments of the battle, the forts white soldiers did stubbornly fight but it was already too late by then. Seeing that their situation was inevitable, the forts commander surrendered to the Anishinabe military force. White casualties were 71 killed, 19 wounded, and 344 captured then probably killed later on or enslaved by the prophesy weary Anishinabek.
