waynes muster soldiers
On August 20, 1794, Wayne’s Sub-Legions met the confederated force of Native Americans near present day Toledo, Ohio. The Battle of Fallen Timbers proved to be the decisive battle in the Northwest Territory. Wayne’s Sub-Legions destroyed Native American resistance in Ohio Country. The following year, 1795 saw the signing of the Treaty of Greeneville. This treaty paved the way for further settlement of what would soon be Ohio.
