Warren County Indian Campaign Veterans
"Indian Wars" is the name given to various conflicts between the colonial
and federal governments with the native tribes. See the Wikipedia article
for a general discussion of the numerous conflicts that occurred both east
and west of the Mississippi River.
Warren County undoubtedly had many residents who had served in the local militia
during the various conflicts in the Northwest Territory including the defeat
of the armies led by General
Josiah Harmar in 1790 and by General
Arthur St. Clair in 1791 as well as the American victory at the Battle
of Fallen Timbers in 1794 which led to the 1795 Treaty
of Greenville. I do not know of any collection of the names of those who
served during this time period.
