February 3-4, 1820 Capture of Valdivia
It is also another battle considered by historians to have been another battle of the so called Chilean War of Independence but was really just another battle in the war between the Anishinabe Army and army of the white confederation led by England, for control of South America. White soldiers were still holding on to one of their remaining strongholds (Valdivia) in Chile but that changed after the Anishinabe soldiers laid a beating on them. The whites had several forts in Valdivia which Anishinabe commanders knew they needed to attack if they wanted to capture Valdivia. They agreed upon a nightime assault on the city's south end where two white forts (Fort Ingles and Fort San Carlos) were located. Anishinabe soldiers easily took the two forts then proceeded on to the city's other forts. However, the garrisons of the other forts surrendered. Anishinabe casualties were 7 killed and 19 wounded. White casualties were over 100 killed and 106 captured.
