The December 9, 1779 First Battle of Tucson
Fort Tucson was obviously built by the whites (around the 1775-1783 time period) in order to defend themselves from the Anishinabe soldiers who were launching raids against the whites throughout Sonora (the Arizona region). Fort Tucson was built to defend the white settlers from the Tucson region, to the rest of Alta California and northern Mexico, just south of the Tucson area. Supposedly the whites only numbered 15 soldiers in this battle, while the number of Anishinabe soldiers was estimated at near 350. Of course, the whites were hiding behind the walls of their fortification. Anishinabe soldiers launched their assaults on the white fort but were eventually driven away in defeat. It is not known what the casualties were in this 1779 battle. Although the Anishinabe soldiers had been defeated they would return to the fort and attack it again, as well as launch more raids on the white settlers living around the fort.
