FORT RECOVERY - A team of archeologists will be surveying land in Fort Recovery to define the boundaries of two battles fought in the village more than 200 years ago.
The Fort Recovery and Ohio historical societies, along with Ball State University, have been awarded a $70,000 grant to study the 1791 Battle of the Wabash and 1794 Battle of Fort Recovery. The grant is from the National Park Service's American Battlefield Protection Program. [More]
