Inscription. In these fields on the southwest side of the east Fork of the Little Miami River, opposite the mouth of Grassy Run, was fought the Battle of Grassy Run April 10, 1792. Simon Kenton led a group of frontiersmen from Limestone (Maysville), KY area against an encampment of Shawnee led by Tecumseh. The battle was fought at night in the rain and due to circumstances, confusion reigned. The Shawnee women and children fled across the East Fork at Lime Kiln Ford, about one-half mile east, while the men drove off the Kenton party. In 1811 this was the site of a Wyandot village, the last Indian village in Clermont County.
