The April 12, 1865 Salina Canyon Fight
After the events which occurred in eastern Colorado and Kansas, in 1864, large numbers of Anishinabe people, their Indian and black allies, commenced an exodus into western Colorado then into Utah. Most, however, probably fled to the north of Mexico. They were not welcomed by the white Mormons. However, they were welcomed by the Anishinabe people who had long lived there. Within a short time, the white Mormons initiated trouble with the Anishinabek, their Indian and black allies, and it sooned erupted into open war. The April 12, 1865 Salina Canyon Fight, was fought as a result of the Anishinabe people raiding white farms and ranches for food. After two white men had been killed, the white Mormons assembled a force of 84 militiamen under the command of Colonel Reddick Allred. The Mormon military force marched into Salina Canyon on April 12, 1865, and didn't have the nerve to stay and fight after Anishinabe soldiers ambushed them. The Mormon military force did the right thing and commenced a retreat out of the canyon. Only two of their number were killed in the fight. If they had stayed and fought, their casualties would have been heavier.
