Inscription. The Western Alliance faced a more formidable foe at the Battle of Fallen Timbers. Although losses were equal on both sides, rumors of eight slain chiefs discouraged the Western Confederacy. They retreated to where Swan Creek meets the Maumee River. As their opponents fled to safety, Wayne's troops regrouped and collected their wounded. Wayne's losses numbered between 22-33 killed with 85-100 wounded.
