The Skirmish at Hickory Sink June 19, 1835
This small skirmish may have been deliberately planned by the whites who initiated the trouble. After some of their cattle went missing, a group of whites started a search for their missing cattle and came upon a camp of Indians who were busy eating a dinner. After reaching the camp where the Indians were eating, the whites started to accuse them of stealing their cattle. They then used their weapons to apprehend the Indians then proceeded to beat them. While the whites were beating the Indians two more arrived then used their weapons on the whites attacking their fellow tribesmen. In the skirmish that followed, three whites were wounded, while one Indian was killed and another wounded. Soon after the hostile incident, the soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation became more aggressive towards the obviously hostile whites. Soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation, then took their frustrations out on those Indians who agreed to sell what they had and relocate to Oklahoma.
