Pictures from the Wabash 225th Symposium

20 March 2017

I probably should have posted this one some time ago....

 

Here are a few pictures from the tour portion of the 225th Battle of the Wabash Symposium, held in Fort Recovery, Ohio.  (the link goes to my Facebook photo album - this hosting site will no longer allow me to add photos to blog posts)  The day was clear and bright, albeit chilly, which made for some great shots.  I have toured this site twice before with guide and Wabash author John Winkler, so I knew what to expect.  The afternoon session was filled with some excellent and not...

Wabash Symposium

12 September 2016

I am very excited that the folks who manage the Fort Recovery State Museum has scheduled a day long symposium and tour for the 225th anniversary of the Battle of the Wabash.  Slated for November 5th, there will be a two hour tour, and about a half dozen speakers.  Limited attendance on this event, so the day after they announced I had my reservation on its way.  Should restoke the fires for gaming the Miami Campaign.

I also decided to change the theme of the page into a cleaner looking format.  The problem with using this particular page hosting service is that their page templates have limited offerings, and there is no ability to change their pre-selected images.  One day I will move from this page...

Driving Tour Map

1 June 2015

Harmar/St. Clair/Wayne Driving Tour

I have been working on developing a driving tour for the 1790s Ohio Indian Wars, and here is my first crack at a list of markers, monuments, museums, forts, battle sites, and other travel type places (dining, etc.) for those wanting to learn a bit more about the Miami Campaign.  If you know of local businesses along the way that are good recommendations to travelers (mostly of the dining variety), please share them with me so I can get them added to the map.  Not only will the eventual tour help bring awarness to thise campaign,...
