Description: Engraved image of of the John Johnston farm, located in Upper Piqua, Miami County, Ohio, from "Historical Collections of Ohio" by Henry Howe, 1847. Johnston served as a local Indian Agent in the early years after Ohio's founding. He was appointed by President James Madison and held the position until the 1840s. His responsibility was to help Native Americans interact with settlers, which filled a need left by the state and federal government when it came to Native American rights. He was also notable for helping to found Kenyon College, and forming the first Sunday School in Miami County. The Ohio Historical Society now maintains John Johnston's farm as a state memorial.

Description: This photograph shows a monument for General George Rogers Clark located at 930 Tecumseh Road in Springfield, Ohio, made by Charles Keck and placed at the site of the Battle of Piqua. The Battle of Peckuwe was the largest battle of the American Revolution west of the Allegheny Mountains. It stands among the 250 acres that is George Rogers Clark Historical Park.
The monument reads: "Here General George Rogers Clark with his Kentucky soldiers defeated and drove from this region the Shawnee Indians August 8, 1780 thus aiding to make the Northwest Territory part of the United States. Erected by the Clark County Historical Society with the aid of the State of Ohio 1924."
George Rogers Clark (November 19, 1752 – February 13, 1818) was a soldier from Virginia and the highest ranking American military officer on the northwestern frontier during the American Revolutionary War. He served as leader of the Kentucky militia throughout much of the war. Clark is best known for his celebrated captures of Kaskaskia (1778) and Vincennes (1779), which greatly weakened British influence in the Northwest Territory. Because the British ceded the entire Northwest Territory to the United States in the 1783 Treaty of Paris, Clark has often been hailed as the "Conqueror of the Old Northwest." Clark County and Clark State Community College, in Ohio, were both named him. View on Ohio Memory. Image ID: SA1039AV_B04F06_07_01 Subjects: Monuments--Ohio; Keck, Charles, 1875-1951; Clark, Geo. R.

Description: Located just west of Springfield are the 250 acres of the George Rogers Clark Park. In 1924, the Clark County Historical Society (CCHS) erected a monument to George Rogers Clark, marking the site of the Battle of Piqua where Clark and his men defeated the Shawnee Indians in 1780 in the largest Revolutionary War battle fought in Ohio. The CCHS managed the monument until 1930, but donated the land and the monument to the State of Ohio due to financial difficulties of the Great Depression. The first of these photographs shows the monument in 1939. The other three images, taken in 1943, show men fishing at the lake, a makeshift diving board, and the park's shelter house. The first photograph measures approximately 3.5 by 5 inches (8.89 by 12.70 cm), and the other three measure 3.75 by 3 inches (9.53 by 7.62 cm). The area of the present-day George Rogers Clark Park was the Shawnee village of Piqua in the late 18th century. It was a hotly contested area, and rumors had been circulating that the Shawnees were planning to attack colonists in Kentucky. The Battle of Piqua occurred on August 8, 1780, when General George Rogers Clark and a band of Kentucky militiamen forced the Native Americans to leave the area. It is believed that Daniel Boone was among those in Clark's assembly. Tecumseh, the future Shawnee chieftain, was twelve or thirteen at the time and witnessed the attack. View on Ohio Memory.
