Short Hills Raid June 21-23, 1838
In June of 1838, a small group of Anishinabe people from extreme western New York, made an attempt to flee to the north of Canada. A force of white soldiers numbering nearly 50, battled a small force of Anishinabe soldiers numbering around 20 in all. Anishinabe soldiers won this battle. They captured 31 white soldiers then probably released them. They were obviously a small group probably numbering no more than 100. They made their escape to the north of Canada. Evidently some of these Anishinabe people sought out the support of some Iroquois. Many Iroquois, however, were supporting the whites.
