The Siege of Durango July 1919
Most likely the city of Durango, Mexico had been brought under Anishinabe control earlier in the conflict. Anyway, in July of 1919, a long battle for control of the Mexican city of Durango, occurred. American and Mexican soldiers eventually overwhelmed the soldiers from the Anishinabe Confederation of northern Mexico, forcing them to flee from Durango. This was the last battle of the so called Mexican Revolution. After the Americans and Mexicans had captured Ciudad Juarez and Durango, the war weary Anishinabek did agree to a peace but obviously on conditions. Those conditions probably involved the so called Mexican Kickapoo Reservations in Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, and Sonora. An Anishinabe Reservation was established which covered probably over 100,000 sq. mi., if not over 200,000 sq. mi., in northern Mexico.
