Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
After their victory over the rebel Texans at the Battle of Coleto, Anishinabe commanders ordered their soldiers to take the white prisoners numbering 342, and execute them all for the crimes their people have committed against Native Americans. Keeping with Anishinabe customs, a date with a religious significance was set to execute the 342 white prisoners. That be Palm Sunday, March 27, 1836. On that day, at least 309 whites were executed by enraged Anishinabe soldiers. After they were executed, they were stacked into a pile then set on fire. The Texas War of Independence ended shortly after this massacre, after the Battle of San Jacinto. Somehow around 28 of the 342 prisoners managed to escape being executed.
