Also Known As The Battle Of The Oak Woods


The second British victory was the surrender of Hull at Detroit. Before it, however, and after Brownstown, was the battle of the Oak Woods. In this battle the Indians were more than one half the British forces. According to official reports, the British regulars and the Canadians broke and fled in confusion, leaving Tecumseh and his...[fighting force] to bear the brunt of the battle. They fought well, but this battle was a victory for our forces. The first of our soldiers killed in this battle was shot from ambush by an Indian, and scalped. [Source]
