Maumee in Lucas County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Why Fight Here?
Clashes in land use and ownership, living patterns and systems of government stimulated multiple conflicts leading to the Battle of Fallen Timbers.
One of the earliest and most important industries in the United States and Canada was the fur trade. Beginning in the 1500s, Europeans and Natives would trade furs for items such as tools and weapons. One of the most sought after furs was beaver, used in European fashion for hats. The picture above is a re-enactment of a French fur trader and native hunting in a canoe.
