Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana

Major John Wilkins November 1763 Defeat

After losing Battle of Devil's Hole on Wednesday September 14, 1763, English Soldiers again attempted to send more reinforcements to Fort Detroit. They assembled more than 600 soldiers and over 20 bateaux or ships to sail to Fort Detroit, from Fort Niagara, by using Lake Erie. They included ammunition, food and weapons to bring to Fort Detroit. Major John Wilkins led his fleet to near where Cleveland, Ohio is, or mouth of Rocky River, which is a few miles west of Cleveland. Wilkins Defeat was a part of Pontiac's War. Below is a list of Battles of Pontiac's War. Ojibway Soldiers were patrolling Lake Eries coast and most definitely knew about that rather large English naval fleet. This was another naval battle between Ojibway Soldiers and their English enemy. According to historical records, a major storm occurred after that English fleet reached Rocky River. Most of them English ships were destroyed or received some degree of damage in that supposed storm. However, war was still raging on. Ojibway Soldiers were yet fighting their English enemy and that includes at Fort Niagara and western Pennsylvania. Ojibway canoes built specifically for large storage, could hold 20 to 40 sailors. They were known to frequently engage in naval battles against both their Indian enemies and white enemies. English casualties were 73 killed, and probably up to 100 wounded. Their supplies of ammunition, food and weapons intended for Fort Detroit, went down with their ships. Another similar incident happened to an English military force led by Colonel Bradstreet nearly one year later, where Major Wilkins incident happened.
