The French were leaving fort St. Ignace after being pressured by the British and were telling the Ojibway to fight the British and kick them out. This started Pontiac's rebellion the Ojibway chief that relentlessly attacked the British all over Michigan and northern Ohio.
History shows that these troops made it up to somewhere around Clare where they incurred

the Natives as part of their trek to Mackinaw as they didn't want the French to know they were coming to bolster the fort at Mackinaw.|
