Main Battle Line

In 1995, after years of research, Dr. G. Michael Pratt led an archeological survey on a field west of the floodplain previously believed to be the site of the battle.

A successful dig turned up artifacts such as buckshot, rifle fragments and frog-legged eagle buttons, unique to Wayne's legion. This combined with a 2001 detailed remote sensing survey, became conclusive proof that the Battle of Fallen Timbers took place on the site where you currently stand.

Legion Buttons

These buttons were only worn by General Wayne's legion from 1792-1796. During the archeological dig, groupings of these buttons were found in great numbers at a location thought to be the shallow graves of fallen soldiers.
