Fort Recovery State Museum Happenings

Battle Research Page unveiled!

As part of a 2013 National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program grant, the Applied Anthropology Laboratories of Ball State University, Department of Anthropology has created a research web site focusing on the Battle of the Wabash and the Battle of Fort Recovery. 

The Applied Anthropology Laboratories has been awarded numerous research grants to conduct archaeological investigations, assist with preservation planning, and promote community awareness of the history and significance of the Battle of the Wabash (1791) and the Battle of Fort Recovery (1794), two historically significant battles of the Northwest Indian Wars.  This research page serves as a clearinghouse for our current research and as a way for the public to learn more about these two battles that took place in modern day Fort Recovery, Ohio.

This research web site was funded in part by a National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program Grant awarded to Ball State University, Department of Anthropology, Applied Anthropology Laboratories in July 2013.  For more information, visit the National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program web page.
