The Siege of Quebec December 31, 1775
From probably the upper peninsula region of Michigan, Anishinabe ogimak ordered many of their brave soldiers from Michigan, Ontario, and probably Quebec, to head for the large French city of Quebec City, to attempt to take the unwanted white city from both the English and French. A force of some 900 Anishinabe soldiers, reached Quebec City on December 2, 1775 and then laid siege to the white city. By December 30, 1775 the Indians finally attempted to break through the walls of the unwanted white city and paid a dear price. Both the English and French were well armed and inflicted numerous casualties on the small Indian military force that broke through the city walls. After the Anishinabek failed to take the white city, they continued the siege until new Indian reinforcements arrived in March of 1776, which brought the number of Indian soldiers at Quebec to over 2,000. However, by May 6, 1776 new English reinforcements numbering over 4,000 arrived at Quebec, which resulted in the Anishinabek retreating from Quebec City. The number of English casualties at the Siege of Quebec was 53 killed and 48 wounded. Indian casualties were obviously higher but are unknown. Of the French cities in Quebec, it was obviously Montreal and Quebec City where the French and few English fled to when the Anishinabek attacked. In 1775, there were probably close to 100,000 or more French in Quebec and a few thousand English as well, as well as extreme eastern Canada. I have no idea exactly how many English and French settlers were killed by the Anishinabe soldiers, but the Anishinabek obviously attacked other French settlements other than Quebec City, in 1775 and 1776. The Siege of Quebec was just one of many sieges the Anishinabe military had to carry out during this war. It served only to make the brave Anishinabe soldiers all the more enraged.
