This is a view of the now heavily channelized Mississinewa River in eastern Indiana. The Mississinewa River arises in Dark County, Ohio, and runs about 100 miles to its confluence with the Wabash River near Peru, Indiana.

In the war of 1812, General Henry Harrison ordered an expedition from Ft. Greenville, Ohio into the Indiana Territory against the Miami Indian villages located along the Mississinewa.

The outcome of this December 17th battle was indecisive, and the troops returned with prisoners, and many soldiers suffering from wounds and severe frostbite.
