Wrong Ft. Miami?[edit]

Source for this is from growing up in Maumee OH - this is local geography to me. I believe the Ft. Miamis referenced is not the one linked to from the article. The Ft. Miami referred to is in Maumee, a few miles (rather than the 50+ miles to the Indian site the article links to).

Fixed. Thanks. Mingusboodle (talk) 17:40, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Legacy?[edit]

The Legacy section currently begins with the assertion that "It is a common misconception that the legion was abandoned in 1796." There are a couple of problems with this assertion, but before I delete it I'm going to give its supporter(s) an opportunity to fix it.

First, provide evidence that it is a miconception. If it wasn't abandoned in 1796, what did happen to it? Was it abandoned in some other year? Was it discontinued or replaced in some other manner than abandonment?

Second, provide evidence that it is a common misconception.
