River Raisin Investigation; May 30, 2009

Case Background and Claims:2009_05_30-RiverRaisinteam

This would be our second trip to the famous Michigan Battleground of The War of 1812 and we would not be disappointed.

The Battle of Frenchtown (Battle of the River Raisin in Monroe, Michigan) was the largest battle fought on Michigan soil. This was a major defeat for the Americans and was one of the bloodiest engagements during the War of 1812. The massacre of some wounded soldiers the following day shocked and enraged Americans throughout the Old Northwest Territory. This incident soon became known as the “River Raisin Massacre” and the rallying cry “Remember the Raisin.”

The battle fought here on Jan 22, 1813 was one of the largest engagements of the War of 1812. Of 934 Americans who fought here, only 33 escaped death or capture. The massacre of wounded soldiers the following day shocked and enraged Americans throughout the Old Northwest Territory.
