“War Along the Wabash: The Ohio Indian Confederacy’s Destruction of the U.S. Army, 1791,” by Steven P. Locke
On Nov. 4, 1791, a coalition of warriors determined to set the Ohio River as a permanent boundary between tribal lands and white settlements faced forces under Gen. Arthur St. Clair. The resulting wilderness struggle ended in the greatest defeat of an American Army at the hands of Native Americans in U.S. history. Historian Steven Locke tells the story of how a small band of determined Indigenous peoples defended their homeland, destroyed an invading American Army on the Wabash River, and forced a fundamental shift in the way in which the United States waged war.
