Bouquet's Expedition

"Lt. Col. Henry Bouquet with 1500 British regulars and American Militia penetrated the Ohio wilderness to crush Chief Pontiac's Indian conspiracy. Here at the forks of the Muskingum River during October and November, Bouquet subdued the Delawares, Senecas and Shawnees without firing a shot, secured the freedom of every colonial captive, and obtained promises of peace -- a feat unequalled in colonial American history." -Ohio Historical Marker
