August 8 1780 - Engaging the Shawnee Village - John Buxton

This battle took place August 8, 1780 during the Revolutionary War period. The British from
Ft. Detroit were supplying the natives to attack the colonists in Kentucky and elsewhere. The British
built a stockade fort for the Shawnee at their village, which you can see in the upper right corner
of image. Under the leadership of George Rogers Clark, the men of Kentucky retaliated. They moved
north to destroy as many Indians and villages as possible while hoping to advance on Ft. Detroit.
There were a few villages and six miles of planted corn along the flatlands of the Mad River just
west of today’s Springfield, Ohio. This has been called the Battle of Piqua.

"The scene shown in my painting is about mid-battle when Clark’s men had attained a hill to
the to the west of the stockade. Their six-pound cannon shelled the fort and a group of
natives filed out to face-off against Clark’s men."

13-year-old Tecumseh was to have lived at this village and is shown holding the dog. George
Rogers Clark’s cousin, Joseph Rogers, was killed at this battle. He is depicted as the Caucasian
Indian on the right side of the native hut.

The engagement was a success for Clark’s bragade, who destroyed six miles of corn, disabling
winter raids on Kentucky because the natives needed to hunt game for food.
