[Top half of Marker]

Erected 1898 by the Piqua Chapter,
of the Daughters of the American
Revolution in commemoration of
the last Battle of the French and
Indian War, fought near this spot,

[Bottom half of Marker]

This monument was erected to preserve the memory of a
Battle between Native American tribes allied with the
French and tribes allied with the British as recounted nearly
A half century later by Chief Black Hoof to John Johnston. Who
Retold the story in 1846 to Henry Howe during the latter's oral
History tour of Ohio. The details of the battle bear
Similarities to the destruction of Fort Pickawillany and may
Have been another account of this conflict. Extant documentation
Of the 1763 battle is based on Col. Johnston's recollection.

This original marker, once located at the north corner
Of Hardin and Hardin Alternate roads, is more than
An outdated version of history. Many historians would view
This marker as a glimpse of how 1898 Piqua viewed the past.

Education and historic preservation are two goals of the DAR.
The Piqua Chapter was active in the public history movement of the
1890's by marking historic sites and publishing a local history book.
