The Fort Mims Massacre August 30, 1813
This battle was fought at Fort Mims, Alabama. A little over one month after the whites and their non Algonquian Creek allies ambushed a force of soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation at the Indian village of Burnt Corn, the Southern Anishinabe Confederation sent scores of their brave soldiers to retaliate against those whites and non Algonquian Creeks, who conspired to wage war on them. On August 29, 1813, two black slaves working outside the fort were startled to see painted Indian soldiers near the fort, then notified the forts commanders, who did believe the two black slaves. It is very obvious that the forts commanders thought their fort would not be attacked by hostile Indians. Minutes before the attack occurred, the gates of the forts eastern side were partially open as a result of sand blocking the gates. In the fort at the moment the attack commenced, were the forts commanding officers getting drunk and playing cards, which made matters worse to the soldiers who had to defend the forts population. It was very easy for the brave soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation to enter the fort as we know. Once they stormed into the fort they commenced to slaughter both soldiers and civilians. They also set fires throughout the fort. After the slaughter was over, over 500 white civilians and white soldiers were dead. The soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation spared the lives of the black slaves. Around 36 whites who were living in Fort Mims at the time of the attack, escaped.
