Treaty of Greenville Indian signatures
Description: On August 20, 1794, an American army commanded by Anthony Wayne defeated a Native American force led by Blue Jacket of the Shawnee at the Battle of Fallen Timbers. With this victory, Indians living in the western portion of modern-day Ohio knew that they had to sue for peace. After long negotiation, on August 3, 1795, leaders of the many Indian tribes in the area met with Wayne at Fort Greenville to sign the Treaty of Greenville. As part of the treaty, the natives relinquished control of much of modern day Ohio. Depicted in the photograph are some of the Indian signatures to the Treaty of Greenville. View on Ohio Memory.
