Pontiac's Rebellion

Pontiac's Rebellion

Pontiac's Rebellion was a Native American uprising against the British just after the close of the French and Indian Wars at Fort Michilimackinac. Native Americans played Lacrosse outside of the fort, and the British came outside to watch the games. Once the natives thought that enough soldiers were outside, they grabbed weapons and rushed the fort, killing every British soldier they saw.
