The Battle of the Wabash
An important anniversary I missed. On November 4, 1790, an allied Indian force commanded by Little Turtle and Blue Jacket (and including a young Tecumseh who, according to some accounts, was Blue Jacket's brother by adoption) annihilated American forces under the command of Revolutionary War hero Arthur St. Clair. It was the worst defeat ever suffered by the US Army.
Hat tip to Mule Boy at Rule 303.
