Ojibwe and Sauk Indians attacked and massacred most of the garrison at Michilimackinac in an uprising popularly known as Pontiac’s Conspiracy. They had suggested playing a game of baggitaway, kind of like lacrosse, in front of the fort in honor of the king’s birthday in 1763. When the ball flew over the stockade wall, the Indians rushed into the fort and seized control.
