Wayne's Trace: Fort Deposit to Fort Industry is the first pictorial history to document the culmination of General "Mad Anthony" Wayne's campaign against the Indian Confederacy in 1794. The retrospective draws on a wealth of archival material and popular culture-including unique vintage engravings, photographs, postcards, and philatelic souvenirs-in tracing the U.S. Legion's march down the Maumee River Valley to Maumee Bay. A highlight is Turkey Foot Rock, an "epic of defeat" landmark the author likens to Custer's Last Stand Hill in Montana. More recent images illustrate archaeological initiatives and the evolution of the Fallen Timbers Battlefield and the site of Fort Miamis as National Park Service affiliates. Together, the local history and lore of Waterville, Maumee, and Toledo, Ohio, amplify a great watershed in our national history, the dislocation of Native American peoples, and the first opportunity for colonization by the young United States.
