Lochry’s Defeat August 24, 1781
This military engagement took place near what is now the Aurora, Indiana region on August 24, 1781. It likely shocked the Anishinabe ogimak even more that an English military force actually penetrated so far into the interior. It was obviously a wake up call to the enraged Anishinabek. Though the English military force numbered only around 100, the Anishinabek took the event very seriously. In the battle that occurred near present day Aurora, Indiana, the Anishinabek easily defeated the English military force. They killed 34 of the 100 English soldiers and captured the rest, then probably killed them later on or enslaved them. The English were now capable of easily sending their soldiers into the domain of the powerful Anishinabe Nation. It was a fact that only enraged more, the already enraged Anishinabek.
