Fallen Timbers 1794: The US Army's first victory (Campaign)

John F. Winkler


After the bold Ohio Indians destroyed the united states military at Wabash in 1791, the Washington management created a brand new US military to defeat them. The well-known innovative battle commander Major-General “Mad” Anthony Wayne prepared and educated the hot military, after which led it into the Ohio desert in 1794. To defeat the Indians, he needed to conquer not only the logistical and intelligence difficulties that had doomed his predecessor's 1791 crusade, but in addition a conspiracy of officials and contractors led through his crucial subordinate, and threatened competition by way of British and Spanish forces. On August 20, 1794, Wayne defeated the Indians at Fallen Timbers. His decisive victory ended in the 1795 Treaty of Greeneville, which ended two decades of clash among the americans and the Ohio Indians, and opened to American cost the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin.
