Inscription. There were multiple noteworthy Americans at the Battle of Fallen Timbers and the Treaty of Greenville. Perhaps you've heard of a few?

William Henry Harrison
Served under General Anthony Wayne at the Battle of Fallen Timbers. During the War of 1812, Harrison served as the commanding general of Fort Meigs in 1813. As the 9th president, Harrison was the last to be born under British rule.

General James Wilkinson
A Revolutionary War hero, Wilkinson fought as Brigadier General at the Battle of Fallen Timbers. Later, as Commanding General of the Army, he reportedly sold secrets to the Spanish government. One of the secrets allegedly sold concerned the expedition of Lewis and Clark - two more veterans from the Northwest Indian Wars.

Meriwether Lewis and William Clark
Became friends after both serving in the Army in 1795, meeting at the Treaty of Greenville. In 1803, the legendary journey of Lewis and Clark began. After two years of traveling 8,000 miles to the west coast and back, Lewis and Clark were honored as national heroes.
