"Plaudits and thanks, public and private, now accumulated upon Wayne. The Congress, then in session, unanimously adopted resolution highly complimentary to the general and the whole army. The President of the United States conveyed to him expressions of the warmest approbation and highest respect."
-- Life of Anthony Wayne
by John Armstrong, 1835
Near the site of the battle of Fallen Timbers, this small park contains a monument honoring Major General Anthony Wayne as well as smaller monuments to the soldiers and Native Americans who died in the battle.
The battle of Fallen Timbers on 20 August 1794, was decisive in bringing the Indians of the Northwest Territory to sign the Treaty of Greene Ville. By this treaty the Indians ceded southern and eastern Ohio to settlers. This brief battle, an overwhelming victory for Wayne's forces, was fought in an area recently ravaged by a windstorm, hence the name Fallen Timbers.
