Near Maumee in Lucas County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Wayne assembled troops at Cincinnati, then moved to Fort Greene Ville where he spent many months creating a disciplined, well-trained army. By summer 1794, he was ready to move.
On the march to the Maumee Valley, Wayne met nearly 2,000 Indians here at a grove of trees felled by a tornado. After hard fighting, Wayne drove the Indians to the gates of nearby Fort Miamis, where he defeated them.
In the Treaty of Greene Ville, signed in 1795, the Indians surrendered their claims to most of Ohio. The treaty pacified the frontier for fifteen years and opened Ohio to peaceful settlement.
