American Battlefield Protection Program Grant 2010
July 2010 - As part of the National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program grant, Ball State University's Department of Anthropology held an archaeology field school from May 16 to June 17, 2010 under the direction of Dr. Mark Groover. As part of their excavation, the field school students discovered a 2 ft wide trench that extended 17 ft east/west almost exactly aligned with the Greenville Treaty Line. The trench contained multiple closely-spaced post holes of various sizes with battlefield period artifacts (including bone buttons, shell buttons, lead musket ball, Charleville musket center band) found in or close to the trench. The trench with postholes almost certainly extends beyond 17 ft - additional excavation units in the future could confirm this. The trench/post hole feature most likely represents a palisade wall of the fort or a fort-related structure.
