Blood on the frontier
On November 4, 1791, a coalition of Native American warriors determined to set the Ohio River as a permanent boundary between tribal lands and white settlements faced an army led by Arthur St. Clair—the resulting horrific struggle ended in the greatest defeat of an American army at the hands of Native Americans.
War Along the Wabash, the result of 30 years of research, puts the battle into the context of the last quarter of the 18th century, exploring how the central importance of land ownership to Europeans arriving in North America resulted in unrelenting demographic pressure on indigenous tribes. This is the story of how a small band of determined indigenous peoples defended their homeland and destroyed an invading American army.
