On The Mississinewa

Jim's Photo Of Native American Structures Taken At The Mississinewa Battlefield Site

"According to Indian tradition, the Miamis came to the Mississinewa from the Big Miami near Piqua, Ohio. Its high cliffs alternating from side to side, its winding bed composed of gravel and stone, were favorite haunts of the Miamis.  The beautiful river with its many tributaries afforded easy access to these lands."

"...the Miamis, with some Delawares from the site of the present city of Muncie...assembled in the towns on the Mississinewa... . As they were there for hostile purposes, Harrison resolved to disperse or destroy them. [Source]
