History

The Battle of Fallen Timbers, August 20, 1794, has been called the “last battle of the American Revolution” and one of the three most important battles in the development of our nation. The decisive victory by the Legion of the United States over a confederacy of Indian tribes opened the Northwest Territory, a five-state region unceded by the native inhabitants, for westward expansion and led to Ohio’s statehood in 1803.

The battle took place amid trees toppled by a tornado just north of the Maumee River in the present-day city of Maumee.

Fallen Timber Battlefield Memorial Park is managed locally by the Metropolitan Park District of the Toledo area.
