Anthony Wayne Parkway

Fort Deposit

Gen. Mad Anthony Wayne built Fort Deposit near here on Aug. 19, 1794 when advancing against theforces ofthe hostile Indian Confederacy gathered at the foot of the Rapida. The following day, leaving Capt. Zebulon Pike with 200 soldiers to guard his equipment and stores, he routed the Indians in the decisive victory of Fallen Timbers. After treating his wounded, Wayne abandoned the fort and returned up the valley to Fort Defiance.

Roche de Bout

Just downstream is a large limestone outcrop detached from the bank. This is Roche de Bout, traditional meeting place of the Indians in the Maumee Valley and the Great Lakes region. It was here that Little Turtle, Blue Jacket, Tarhe the Crane, and other war chiefs met to plan their strategy against Wayne's Legion and the earlier armies of Generals Harmar and St. Clair.
