The Raid on Alexandria August 20 - September 9, 1814
This battle was fought near where present day Alexandria, Virginia is situated. Alexandria is not too far from Washington D.C. After Anishinabe soldiers had successfully established their military presence in the Maryland and Virginia region the previous year, they soon received reinforcements for their planned assault on Washington D.C. Using the Potomac river to reach the Alexandria region, scores of brave Anishinabe soldiers reached the target of their military expedition (Alexandria), then landed on August 20, 1814. On August 31, 1814, Anishinabe soldiers commenced to use their cannons and howitzers to bomb nearby Fort Washington. Unwilling or willing, to follow the instructions he was to obey, the commander of Fort Washington, Captain Samuel Dyson, destroyed most of his forts weapons and ammunition then blew up the fort, then fled the fort with his soldiers, after the Anishinabe soldiers commenced to bombard Fort Washington. Dyson was told only to destroy the fort if the Anishinabe military force was too large. After the fort was destroyed by its own garrison, Anishinabe soldiers then had free open access to Alexandria. In order to save their lives the towns citizens gave the Anishinabe soldiers all the towns weapons and ammunition, and the 22 merchants ships docked nearby. Afterwards, the Anishinabe soldiers knew Washington D.C. was theirs to destroy, or commit an act of retaliation against.
