Fort Parker Massacre
Not much more than one month after the so called last battle of the so called Texas War of Independence was fought (that be the Battle of San Jacinto), the war for control of Texas resumed. On May 19, 1836, a large Anishinabe Army attacked Fort Parker, Texas. Fort Parker had been built nearly two years earlier in March of 1834, to offer white settlers protection from the enraged Anishinabe soldiers. In the Anishinabe assault on Fort Parker, 5 whites were killed, and another 5 were captured. This Anishinabe assault on Fort Parker, was specifically carried out to let the white invaders in Texas, know that any agreements thought to have been reached, were futile. In other words, Anishinabe soldiers were still an independent military force the whites had to deal with. That meant the whites, even in the east of Texas, had to deal very carefully with the Anishinabe population of Texas, which was growing at the time, and would increase even more after some 100,000 or more Anishinabe people left their homes in the south of Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio, in 1838-1839. It is known as the Cherokee Trail of Tears but no Cherokee left on the exodus. It was the Black River and Swan Creek Chippewa's, who fled. It was the Seven Fires Prophecy which led the Ohio regions Anishinabek, to pack their belongings and commence the westward exodus, in 1838-1839.
