The Little Egg Harbor Massacre October 15, 1778
At Chestnut Neck (it is in New Jersey), near the Little Egg Harbor River, the whites from around the Atlantic coastline and from Europe, sailed their ships loaded with supplies for war and for nutrition, to distribute between the New York City and Philadelphia region. This cargo loading and unloading location was known of by the brave Anishinabe soldiers, who were ordered early on in the war by their commanders, to frequently raid the Chestnut Neck region to attempt to disrupt or steal the supplies the whites were receiving during the war. Since the whites knew they now were back in control of the region between New York City and Philadelphia, stopping the constant raids the brave Anishinabe soldiers carried out in the Chestnut Neck region, became top priority. On October 15, 1778 a force of white soldiers numbering close to 500, surprised attacked a force of around 50 brave Anishinabe soldiers who were attempting to disrupt or steal the supplies arriving near Chestnut Neck. It is likely most of the 50 brave Anishinabe soldiers were killed in the massacre. For most of 1778, the whites had concentrated on driving off the remaining contingents of brave Anishinabe soldiers stationed between the New York City and Philadelphia region. After this battle the whites began to set their attention back on the northern New York State region, which was still under Anishinabe control.
