The First Battle of Ciudad Juarez February 1, 1911
American soldiers attacked the Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez, which had a force of over 500 Mexican soldiers to defend the city. It was very likely that Anishinabek from Texas, were conspiring with Anishinabe ogimak from Mexico, to allow them entrance into Mexico just before the war commenced. Soon after this battle, a large group of Anishinabek in Texas, entered Mexico. After Ciudad Juarez was attacked, the Anishinabe military sent large numbers of their soldiers to the Ciudad Juarez region. The Americans and their Mexican allies, eventually defeated the force of Anishinabe soldiers attempting to recapture the Mexican city. After losing the battle at Ciudad Juarez, Anishinabe military commanders then ordered their soldiers to destroy railroads leading from southern Mexico and other Mexican locations, to the Ciudad Juarez region, to prevent Mexico from sending more reinforcements to the Ciudad Juarez region. The Anishinabe Confederation, however, continued to sporadically attack the city for several more days. American soldiers had now forced their way into the Mexican State of Chihuahua but intense fighting followed which spread into New Mexico. Hollywood actor Tom Mix, fought on the side of the American soldiers in this battle.
