Maumee in Lucas County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Fort Miamis During the War of 1812
In May and July, Indians led by Shawnee Chief Tecumseh and British troops from Fort Miamis attacked U.S. Fort Meigs in present-day Perrysburg. General William Henry Harrison's soldiers repelled both attacks and later that year defeated British and Indian forces at the Battle of the Thames in present-day Ontario, Canada.
These engagements effectively ended hopes for a permanent American Indian Confederacy and British occupation of the American Northwest.
