Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Carleton’s Raid October 24-November 14, 1778
Once again the whites boarded their ships near lle Aux Noix, near the Quebec-New York border, to sail down to Lake Champlain. Their planned location to stop was the southern shores of Lake Champlain, to carry out raids in the New York State and Vermont border region. They numbered around 500, including their Iroquois allies. Their plans were to search for Indian supplies to destroy, which history indicates they successfully accomplished. According to Major Carleton, the whites destroyed enough Indian food supplies to feed 12,000 people. It is not known the exact number of casualties that occurred, but the whites claimed they captured 79 Indians. If they did they later killed them. White casualties occurred but are not correctly known of. One account claimed one of the boats of the whites was lost with 17 white soldiers killed.
