Description: Reconstructed block houses and stockade on the site of Fort Recovery, Mercer County, Ohio. The stockade was reconstructed in 1955 and 1956. The original fort was built in 1793-1794 by soldiers under the command of General Anthony Wayne on the site where soldiers under General Arthur St. Clair's command were defeated by a confederacy of American tribes under the leadership of Shawnee chief Weyapiersenwah (Blue Jacket) and Miami chief Mishikinakwa (Little Turtle). Wayne's forces succeeded in defending the fort and bringing an end to military conflict between the American Indian tribes and European settlers in the territory that became the state of Ohio.
