Capitol Ohio : The Treaty Of Greenville (Art Walk Series)
The Treaty of Greenville was signed at Fort Greenville (now Greenville, Ohio), on August 2, 1795, between a coalition of Native Americans & Frontiers men known as the Western Confederacy and the United States following the Native American loss at the Battle of Fallen Timbers. It put an end to the Northwest Indian War. The United States was represented by General "Mad Anthony" Wayne, who led the victory at Fallen Timbers. In exchange for goods to the value of $20,000 (such as blankets, utensils, and domestic animals), the Native Americans turned over to the United States large parts of modern-day Ohio, the future site of downtown Chicago, the Fort Detroit area, Maumee Ohio Area, and the Lower Sandusky Ohio Area.
