Maumee in Lucas County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Fort Miamis Connection
For the British, the garrison at Fort Miamis was strictly a defensive barrier to Wayne's march northward. The British commander was ordered not to fire on the Americans unless fired upon. However, a contingency of 60 members of the Canadian Militia joined the Natives' fight from there. This effort is considered by some to be Canada's first foreign engagement.
