Stories of Revolutionary Attacks during the Revolutionary War. Part V

General Anthony Wayne

Later on, when Indian warfare was somewhat diminishing on the frontier, in August of that same year, General Anthony Wayne encountered and routed a large body of the Indians at the rapids of the Great Maumee river in Ohio. It was his last achievement as a popular hero. Certain landmarks sprang up around the country, such as the Wayne Tavern in Staunton, Virginia; a swinging sign located at the corner of Beverley and New Streets was painted with a likeness of “Mad Anthony”.
