Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana

September 1763 Battle of Fighting Island

On Sunday September 4, 1763 a force of 300 brave Ojibway Soldiers attempted to capture an English schooner named Huron, attempting to bring supplies to Fort Detroit. In a following blunder, Ojibway Soldiers were fooled by one of those 14 English Soldiers on that schooner who either spoke Ojibway or was an Indian ally of whites. They were either told that if they dared to board their schooner, that gunpowder their schooner was carrying would be used to blow up their schooner and them. Or they were coerced into boarding that schooner. Anyway, after Ojibway Soldiers attempted to capture that English schooner carrying ammunition to Fort Detroit, English Soldiers commenced to leave their schooner but not without first setting off gunpowder schooner Huron was carrying. It exploded, leaving 15 brave Ojibway Soldiers dead and another 12 were wounded. White casualties were 8 killed and wounded in this naval battle fought near what is now Fighting Island which is less than 1/2 a mile east of Grassy Island. Fighting Island is much larger than Grassy Island. Ojibway Soldiers numbered near 340 in this naval battle which was an English failure to bring ammunition and weapons to Fort Detroit.
