Battle of Fish Creek
On April 24, 1885, a force of 200 Anishinabe soldiers under the command of an unknown Anishinabe ogima, battled a much larger Canadian military force of some 900 soldiers, and defeated them. The location of the battle was northeast of present day Saskatoon, near present day Fish Creek, Saskatchewan. On April 10, 1885, Major General Frederick Middleton led his 900 soldiers out of the safety of Fort Qu'Appelle, which was eventually discovered by Anishinabe scouts. After learning about the large force of white soldiers leaving the fort, Anishinabe ogimak planned an ambush of the larger white military force. It occurred on April 24, 1885. Upon seeing the approach of their enemy, a call was released to commence the assault on the 900 Canadian soldiers, which resulted in the Canadian military force drawing back for safety. After the initial Anishinabe assault, the ammunition the Anishinabe soldiers had, had already greatly diminished. It forced the Anishinabe soldiers to find concealment, and resort to sniper fire. However, the damage had already been done. Major General Frederick Middleton eventually called for a retreat from the battle. White casualties were 10 killed and 45 wounded in the battle. Anishinabe casualties were 4 killed.
