One event in Pontiac's War occurred on this day in 1763, when the British built Fort Presque Isle, present-day Erie, Pennsylvania, was assaulted by a force of about 250 Ottawas, Ojibwas, Wyandots, and Senecas. After holding out for two days, the garrison of approximately sixty men surrendered on the condition that they could return to Fort Pitt. Most were instead killed after emerging from the fort.
Is it estimated that by late fall of 1763, Pontiac's forces had killed or captured more than six hundred people.
