The Fifth Battle of New York November 19, 1776
Though they had driven off the large white military force of 11,000 soldiers, only a few days earlier at Fort Washington and forced the white soldiers in the fort to capitulate, the remaining Anishinabe soldiers in the New York City region, were congregated near Fort Lee anticipating another large force of white soldiers to make their approach near the fort, to attempt to drive them off. Instead of standing their ground, the brave Anishinabe soldiers, their numbers greatly reduced by constant war, made their decision to retreat from the Fort Lee region, instead of fighting another battle against the more numerous and better armed white soldiers who were constantly being sent reinforcements from Europe. This would not be the last time the Anishinabek waged war on the whites in the New York City region. As for the number of casualties the brave Anishinabe soldiers endured during the battles for New York City, it was obviously in the thousands, and may have surpassed that of the whites. Of all the major English cities the Anishinabek laid siege to, it was probably New York City which contained the most white refugees. After this November 19, 1776 Anishinabe defeat, the whites resumed control of New York City.
Though the whites had brought New York City back under their control, the Anishinabek still controlled New Jersey, including forcing several large New Jersey cities to endure long sieges, and eastern Pennsylvania, where they patrolled the Philadelphia region. It was those locations the English, French, Germans, and other whites, next targeted. This battle only forced the Anishinabe Nation to withdraw their brave soldiers to the region immediately surrounding New York City. New York City's population obviously grew by leaps and bounds, during the time period the brave Anishinabe soldiers laid siege to that region. Large numbers of whites who had farms in the surrounding region and lived in the smaller white settlements in the region, fled to New York City for protection. Instead of returning to their homes, a great many chose to stay and live in New York City.
