Description: Caption reads; "The Treaty of Greeneville Pipe is the historic calumet which was solemnly smoked by General Anthony "Mad" Wayne, his staff officers and ninety Indian chiefs. The Greeneville Treaty (1795) was never broken, for the Indians considered the calumet ceremony as the most solemn and binding of pledges. With this treaty, Indian warfare in Ohio was practically at a close and the gates were open to civilization. This pipe may be seen in the Ohio State Museum in Columbus." View on Ohio Memory.
