Named for the broad Muskingum River flood plain, this park is the site of a raid by about twenty-five Delaware and Wyandot warriors on an Ohio Company settlements on January 2, 1791. The American Indians were attempting to halt the encroachment of European-Americans onto their tribal lands. The raid outraged the United States government and led to to four years of bitter warfare, which ended with the defeat of the tribal coalition at the Battle of Fallen Timbers and the signing of the Treaty of Green Ville.
