Sunday, June 12, 3:00 - What Recent Archaeology Tells Us about Wabash 1791 and the Battle of Fort Recovery 1794!
Chris Thompson - Archaeologist, Applied Anthropology Laboratories, Ball State University
Imagine, even after 225 years, discoveries are being made that further inform what is known about the largest Native American/US Army battle to take place - the Battle of the Wabash of 1791. With the support of American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) grants (National Park Service), many acres of the battlefield have been studied and have provided new and interesting information about different aspects of the battle.
A large display pertaining to the archaeology of the battlefield and fort will be available for viewing during this presentation and the following week of the Community's 225 Celebration.
This speaker/presentation is scheduled to coincide with the community's 225 year celebration. An outdoor drama of the town's history - including the battles - will be held in the evening. See www.FR225.com for more information.
