From the Publisher
Two hundred years ago during the War of 1812, a battle took place along the bank of the Maumee River in which over two hundred Kentucky militia were killed by the Native Americans, who were attempting to preserve their homelands. The story of those who fought there has been mainly forgotten. This book follows the journey of those brave men from the time they answered the call to duty to their date with destiny on May 5, 1813. You will be with them from the time they march north, as they move down river, to the taking of the British cannons, to the battle in the woods, their surrender and the death march to Fort Miamis, the slaughter once inside the fort, the noble Tecumseh coming to their rescue, and finally their journey home to be reunited with family and friends. Here for the first time is their story told.
