Battle of the Wabash 1791 - Using Archaeological results to support GIS Data Modeling and further Historical Research
Author(s): Christine Keller
Ball State University’s Department of Anthropology was awarded a 2010 American Battlefield Protection Program Grant to conduct archaeological research on the site of the Battle of the Wabash (now modern day Fort Recovery, Ohio), a historically significant 1791 battle that was part of the Northwest Indian Wars. GIS data modeling results using the National Park Service’s KOCOA landscape methodology highlighted probable Native American battle strategy and movement. Additional historical research with a BSU ASPiRE grant has supported the GIS data modeling results and contributed to a greater understanding of this battle from a Native American perspective. This paper will highlight current archaeological, GIS data modeling and historical research results, and will discuss future research projects based on this data.
