Following the Revolutionary War, more and more settlers began to migrate into what was the territory of the Indians. By the early 19th century, there was open hostilty between whites and Indians. Farmers wanted more land and the Indians resented the farmers' presence. An uncertain peace evaporated. The call for war began to build. This site is a study of the battles, the people who were there and related materials. I include in the accounts as many names as possible.
