Summary

Ball State University’s Department of Anthropology has completed five years of archaeological and historical research at the battlefield of the Battle of the Wabash (1791) and the Battle of Fort Recovery (1794), two significant Northwest Indian War battles that took place in present day Fort Recovery, Ohio.  This research was funded by multiple National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program grants and additional university funding. This poster will present the results of this research, specifically the use of GIS data modeling and the NPS’ KOCOA landscape analysis methodology to highlight probable Native American battle strategy and movement, U.S. military strategy, and possible placement of the original Fort Recovery built in 1793.  The conclusions will address the use of these results to support future archaeological research, site preservation, and community involvement.
