Maumee in Lucas County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Archeology & Artifacts
Main Battle Line
A successful dig turned up artifacts such as buckshot, rifle fragments and frog-legged eagle buttons, unique to Wayne's legion. This combined with a 2001 detailed remote sensing survey, became conclusive proof that the Battle of Fallen Timbers took place on the site where you currently stand.
These buttons were only worn by General Wayne's legion from 1792-1796. During the archeological dig, groupings of these buttons were found in great numbers at a location thought to be the shallow graves of fallen soldiers.
