The Battle of Frenchtown: The River Raisin Massacre. Now a National Park, the 1812 battlefield near Monroe, Michigan, it was the site of one of the largest engagements of the war. It was a series of battles that took place between Jan 18-23, 1813. It is the deadliest conflict ever on Michigan soil. Over 397 men died in the second battle, hundreds taken prisoner, and dozens of the prisoners were killed by a Native Amercian massacre the next day.
