The Fallout of the Pontiac War

Jay P.

The Pontiac War took place during the 1960’s in North America between the Indians/North Americans and the British who ruled them after they defeated the French. It was led by Pontiac, the chief of the Ottawa and it started as uprising. During late May and early June in 1762, Pontiac captured most of the small, isolated garrisons south and west of Detroit. There were many battles and ambushes, like the Bloody Run and the Bushy Run, and, as to be expected, the results of each varied. In winter when food was scarce, the Indians organized a series of raids for food and lost many lives doing so. Pontiac and his allies remained out of British control, but the resistance of the garrison at Detroit and the war caused the Indian force to gradually melt away. The worst of the siege was over but the conflict remained unresolved, but after General Gage (a British general) executed many victories over the Indians, the great Indian uprising sputtered out as British power was reasserted.1
