Battle of Fallen Timbers Monument
It was dedicated in 1929 at the site of the Battle of Fallen Timbers which took place on August 20, 1794. At that battle General "Mad Anthony" Wayne defeated a combined army of various tribes led by Chiefs Little Turtle, Turkey Foot, Blue Jacket and others. The monument is located in a park, 2 miles west of Maumee, Ohio.
The monument includes a 15 foot tall base topped by a bronze statue of General Wayne flanked by figures of a Native American and a frontiersman. Three bronze bas reliefs decorate the sides of the base.
The battle site was named "Fallen Timbers" because a tornado had knocked down a large number of trees there.
The United States Postal Service issued a stamp in 1929 paying tribute to the American victory that featured the image of the monument on it.
