Battle of Fallen Timbers

 Related Terms

• "Mad" Anthony Wayne

 

Definition: Victory of American forces over Native American ones in present-day Toledo, Ohio, in 1794. Under the command of General "Mad" Anthony Wayne, the Americans sent a larger Native American force running in retreat. This battle was also significant because the Native Americans who fought there that day retreated to Fort Miami, where they thought they could find British reinforcements. But the British, unwilling to risk another war with the United States, did not help.
