The Weapons of Fallen Timbers

The history changing battle of Fallen Timbers was fought in a fog of black powder smoke and the sound of steel on steel as bayonet and sword met tomahawk and knife. On Sunday September 23, 2018 the Fallen Timbers Battlefield Preservation Commission and Wayne’s 1st Sub Legion of the United States will host a special program where the weapons carried by the Native Americans defending their homes and the soldiers of Wayne’s Legion will be displayed. Come out to the the Visitors Center at 4949 Jerome Road Maumee and see first hand the grim technology of war on the frontier. Historical re-enactors will also be staging musket drills and black powder demonstration at regular times. Program time 1 – 4 p.m. Free, no reservations needed.
