After the initial volleys of hot lead, a relative calm leads us into Fallen Timbers, a great battle that took place on August 20th, 1794 in present-day Ohio. In an area of uprooted trees from past storms, an alliance of various Indian tribes called the Western Lakes Confederacy met an army led by General "Mad Anthony" Wayne. Despite a great resistance, the Indians were greatly outnumbered and surrounded, and fled in confusion to a nearby British post called Fort Miami. The British offered no shelter or assistance to their Indian allies. This defeat of the Indian Confederacy was the final battle of Little Turtle's War and led to the Ohio Territory being ceded to the United States.
