Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. West Jeddore is a community of the Halifax Regional Municipality in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia.Immediately after the declaration of Dummer's War, on July 22, 1722, Governor Richard Philipps commissioned Capt. John Elliot and Capt. John Robinson in two sloops with regiments to protect the fishery at Canso, Nova Scotia and retrieve the New England prisoners. There was a Mi'kmaq camping place at near-by West Jeddore. There were thirty-nine natives at Winnepang (present-day Jeddore Harbour) who were harbouring prisoners in seven vessels. Capt. Elliot and Bradstreet arrived in the harbour and attacked the natives. There was a two hour naval battle. Bradstreet led a boarding party that overwhelmed the natives with hand grenades and disciplined fire. Capt. Elliot was badly wounded as were several of his men. Five of the men were killed.
