Battle of Fort Pitt
On April 15, 1885, a force of 200 Anishinabe soldiers under the command of ogima Big Bear, approached Fort Pitt which was located in western Saskatchewan, about 15 miles from the Alberta border. Before commecing their assault on Fort Pitt, they discovered 3 police officers. They killed 1, wounded another, and took the last one hostage. Afterwards, they approached Fort Pitt, then commenced a negotiation with the forts commander who was Francis Dickens, the son of the author Charles Dickens. Knowing he had only 22 militia including himself, Dickens agreed to surrender the fort to the more numerous Anishinabe soldiers. Ogima Big Bear had all 24 remaining white militias including Francis Dickens, taken hostage but soon released them. However, he kept a few white civilians as hostages. After taking control of the fort, ogima Big Bear ordered his soldiers to destroy the unwanted fort.
