  • We're the Western Confederacy!
  • Hello good sir or madam, I’m the first president of America, George Washington!
  • This is Anthony Wayne!
  • We have raided the Americans!
  • What! Take offence!
  • Attack them!
  • How much longer do you want this fight to go on!?!
  • You are now a general!
  • We surrender!
  • 1775
  • We're the Western Confederacy!
  • 1794
  • 1792
  • You are now a general!
  • Who: Several Native American Tribes in Ohio (The Western Confederacy), George Washington, and Anthony Wayne.
  • Fort Washington
  • Fort Jefferson
  • What: The Western Confederacy conducted raids, so George Washington appointed Anthony Wayne after two other Generals failed to defeat them. The Native Americans prepared to attack them, but then Wayne's army drove them out of the battlefield. The English refused to help the Native Americans, but neither left the area, per request.
  • You are now a general!
  • When: In 1775 the Western Confederacy was formed, in 1792 Anthony Wayne was appointed to be the commander of an army, and in Summer 1794 the Battle of Fallen Timbers occurred.
  • *33
  • *100
  • *66
  • Where: Anthony Wayne and his army stayed at Fort Washington, Fort Jefferson, newly constructed Fort Greene Ville, and while they were going towards Maumee River, the Native Americans attacked them at a place called "Fallen Timbers", which was a place of fallen trees from a tornado.
  • Fort Greene Ville
  • Fallen Timbers
  • Why: The Native Americans didn't want the Americans to settle on their land, but the Americans did. So George Washington appointed three generals, but the first two [and their armies] were defeated by the Western Confederacy, while the third (Anthony Wayne) [and his army] defeated the Native Americans while they were trying to attack them.
  • Outcome: Wayne's army had 33 casualties, and 100 wounded, while the Confederacy had twice the deaths. Their victory established the treaty of Greenville, which removed the Native Americans claim on the land. For the next twenty years, Native American, British-controlled Canadians, and Americans fought for this land, with many casualties.
