Battle of Bushy Run
Niles Anderson (au)
By 1763, the Indian tribes contained behind the western frontier of Brit.-Amer. settlement realized that they must band together to stop the encroachment of settlers. In early May 1763, the chief of the Ottawa nation, Pontiac, united warriors of the Ottawas, Wyandots, Chippewas, & Potawatomies for an assault on Detroit. Failing to take the fort, he settled down to a siege. Inspired by Pontiacís example, his cohorts captured the small garrisons of satellite forts about Detroit. The uprising spread to threaten the PA posts of Venango, Le Boeuf, & Presque Isle, & finally to reach Ft. Pitt, Ft. Bedford, & Ft. Ligonier. This document describes the attack on Ft. Pitt & the victory over the Indians by the soldiers led by Col. Henry Bouquet at the Battle of Bushy Run. Maps & illus.
