A good deal of switching sides. Some Kentuckians joined the Detroit militia. On the other hand the Chippewa chief Blackbird (with the Boonesborough seigers) would go over to the Americans, along with the Canadian Beaubien (who had helped to capture the salt-makers). Part of the Detroit militia deserted to the American side. "It was easy to change sides, since the revolting Colonists were quite as British by blood as the King's faithful subjects and sometimes members of the same families. . . . Things were all very mixed-up out there in the backwoods, where the hard task of survival was the main problem." (BAKELESS:205)
