Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
July 27 - August 10, 1813 Siege of Chillan
This battle is considered to have been a battle of the Chilean War of Independence but was yet another battle between the Anishinabe Army and soldiers from the white confederation led by England, for control of South America. Anishinabe soldiers had attempted to capture the city of Chillan earlier in the year but were driven off in defeat. Not willing to allow the whites to keep control of the city of Chillan, Anishinabe ogimak ordered their brave soldiers to lay siege to the city of Chillan, in the hopes they could force the whites to capitulate. It did not work out. The whites kept control of the city of Chillan which must have enraged all Anishinabe people involved in the nearly two week long siege. White soldiers numbered some 5,000 strong in the city of Chillan. Anishinabe soldiers had to deal with those who deserted because of the winter climate conditions and lack of food. Anishinabe casualties were over 500 killed, wounded, and captured.
