The Santa Isabel Massacre January 10, 1916
About 4 miles from the Mexican city of Santa Isabel, which is located in the Mexican State of Chihuahua, and 25 miles southwest of Chihuahua City, Anishinabe soldiers rounded up 18 US citizens then killed them all except 1. According to historians, Anishinabe soldiers had planned on attacking a train they knew was going to pass through Santa Isabel. However, they may not have known that American passengers were on the train. At least 15 of the American passengers worked for an American mining company. It would not be the last attack on American citizens by soldiers from the Anishinabe Confederation of Mexico, that year.
