The July 7, 1776 First Battle of Terrenate
According to historians, in August of 1775, the whites commenced to building a fort on a bluff overlooking the San Pedro River of southern Arizona. Most likely the whites were in the process of building a few fortified settlements in the Sonora (Arizona region) region to defend themselves from the enraged Anishinabe soldiers. The fort had 56 soldiers under the command of Francisco Tovar. As soon as Anishinabe scouts learned that the whites had constructed a fort (the whites were actually still in the progress of building the fort at the time of the battle) near the San Pedro River, they wasted little time launching direct assaults on the unwanted white fort and against the white settlers who dared to farm around the fort. While the Anishinabe soldiers held the fort under a siege, a force of Spanish soldiers left the safety of the fort and got into a battle with the Anishinabe soldiers surrounding the unwanted fort. This occurred after the whites seen a force of Anishinabe soldiers crossing the San Pedro River. Once they seen the Anishinabe soldiers the white soldiers commenced to launching a direct assault on them. Those who survived lived to regret doing so. Anishinabe soldiers defeated the small white military force, using primarily their bows and arrows, as well as the few cannons and guns they had. White casualties were 25 killed including the commander of the small force, and an unknown number wounded. Anishinabe casualties are unknown.
