The Second Siege of Fort Henry September 11, 1782
Once again the brave Anishinabe soldiers would attempt to take Fort Henry from the English, in early September of 1782. Around 300 Anishinabe soldiers reached the unwanted white fortification on September 11, 1782, and launched an assault on the unwanted white fortified settlement. This time they would spend three days attempting to force the fortified settlement's inhabitants to surrender, and trying to burn the unwanted white fortified settlement to the ground. Their rage must have increased after each attempt failed. We know they would have killed the forts inhabitants if they had somehow managed to get their hands on them. After three days of a waste of time, the military commanders of the Anishinabe soldiers ordered the siege lifted, then they left the region. Time after time, the brave Anishinabe soldiers had to deal with their white enemies hiding behind their fortified settlements, which led to the Indian soldiers obviously exerting great amounts of time and energy trying to either force their white enemies to surrender, or to destroy their fortified settlements. After this battle, the war weary Anishinabek and whites, agreed to a temporary cease-fire. It did not last long.
