Illustration titled "Visit of Pontiac and the Indians to Major Gladwin." Pontiac, Chief of the Ottawas, united a coalition of Native American tribes to resist British rule in the Great Lakes region and Ohio Valley. He led an uprising at Fort Detroit known as Pontiac's Rebellion in 1763, but the tribes were not able to overcome the fort's strong fortifications in spite of a five-month siege.
