Fort Recovery is the site of two remarkable battles in American history: the 1791 defeat of Arthur St. Clair's forces by Miami Leader Little Turtle, and the 1794 victory of General Anthony Wayne's army over an alliance of Shawnee, Delaware, Ottawa, Miami, and Ojibwa. Fort Recovery offers insights into these stories of Indian and American history through reconstructed blockhouses and stockade, museum exhibits, and a monument.
