Inscription. Feeling confident after defeating the British in the Revolutionary War, the U.S. stood little chance of success against the better ordered Western Confederacy forces. As a result the well-organized natives led by Little Turtle and Blue Jacket defeated soldiers led by General Harmar (1790) and General St. Clair (1791).

Harmar's Defeat:
- 185 Dead

St. Clair's Defeat:
- 630 Dead (37 Officers)
- 283 Wounded

Worst American Defeat at the Hands of Natives

97.9% Casualty Rate
