Fort Recovery statue unveiled
local picture
A life-size wooden statue of "Red-Haired Nance," one of only a few to survive Gen. Arthur St. Clair's devastating defeat by American Indians at Fort Recovery in 1791, was unveiled to the public on Saturday. The statue in front of the fort was carved by Fort Recovery artist Phil Wood. The story goes that the woman fought the Indians with a frying pan in one hand while holding her infant baby in the other. Fearing for her child's life, she placed the baby on the ground. After the battle, the mother spent the rest of her life searching in vain for her child.
