Why Are We Called 1763?
1763 is the year that lacrosse became Michigan’s liberator and first team sport. In the summer of 1763 the Sauk and Ojibwe needed a plan to recapture Fort Michilimackinac (upper Michigan) from the British. The British were at war with the French and controlled all the trading in the Upper-Midwest. Since the Ojibwe and Sauk preferred the French’s favorable trading practices over those of the English they devised a unique plan, using a lacrosse game to distract the British soldiers so they could take over the fort. The date for the game was set for June 2 to coincide with the English Kings birthday when the soldiers would be free from their duties and ready to be entertained by the public wagering on the game. On the day of the game the plan had the women of both tribes line up along the wall in front of the main gate with tomahawks, knives and war clubs under their shawls and blankets. As the game moved closer to the main gate the ball was thrown into the Fort. The players from both teams dropped their sticks, grabbing the weapons from the women and stormed the unsuspecting British through the open main gate capturing the Fort and all the goods, and that’s how Lacrosse liberated Michigan for the natives!
