The Battle of Piqua

General George Rogers Clark with his Kentucky soldiers defeated and drove from this area the Shawnee Indians thus aiding to make the Northwest Territory part of the United States. The battle was a significant one in the struggle of the pioneer for the West and in the struggle of the American colonies for ascendancy over the British during the American Revolution. The permanent settlement of the area of Ohio began within a decade and a half after General Clark's victory.
