1775. Several Native American tribes come together in Ohio and form The Western Confederacy.
The members of the confederacy preformed raids to stop western expansion. these raids cause the US government to get involved and fight back.
With the help of the British, the Native Americans were a very strong enemy, and defeated armies led by Josiah Harmar and Arthur St. Claire. An American supply train was also attacked by troops led by chief little turtle. Then, the Native Americans were posted 5 miles away from a british supply outpost, in a place called fallen timbers, being probised food and supplies from the british if they held it without their help.. This place was called fallen timbers because it was where a lot of trees were knocked over by a tornado. Josiah Harmar Chief Little Turtle Arthur St. Claire
The American troops, led by US Major General Wayne, advanced on the native american force. they were using trees as cover but without british support, they lost the battle.
Chief Little Turtle then allowed the Americans to expand westward(1795) and signed the Jay Treaty(1794).
The Jay Treaty stated that the all British troops were to be removed from america and there would be no other British interference.
