By John F. Winkler

After the ambitious Ohio Indians destroyed the U.S. military at Wabash in 1791, the Washington management created a brand new US military to defeat them.  The well-known innovative battle commander Major-General “Mad” Anthony Wayne equipped and educated the recent military, after which led it into the Ohio desolate tract in 1794.  To defeat the Indians, he needed to triumph over not only the logistical and intelligence difficulties that had doomed his predecessor's 1791 crusade, but in addition a conspiracy of officials and contractors led via his valuable subordinate, and threatened competition by means of British and Spanish forces.  On August 20, 1794, Wayne defeated the Indians at Fallen Timbers.  His decisive victory ended in the 1795 Treaty of Greeneville, which ended two decades of clash among the americans and the Ohio Indians, and opened to American cost the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin.
