On May 26, 1780, the attack on St. Louis ("Battle of Ft. San Carlos") occured. The Battle of Fort San Carlos is the only Revolutionary War battle fought West of the Mississippi. The Colonial Militia of St. Louis defended the attack from British-led Sioux, Sac, Fox and Winnebago warriors. The approximately three to four hundred St. Louis defenders, that included whites and slaves, successfully repulsed the attack with light losses: twenty killed, seven wounded, and anywhere from twenty-six to seventy were captured.
