Searching for George Rogers Clark in Yellow Springs

Event Type: History
Age Group(s): Adults
Date: 6/5/2018
Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Time: 7:30 PM
 Yellow Springs resident Chris Till will discuss George Rogers Clark's possible passage through Yellow Springs. In 1780, Clark and 2,000 American soldiers likely marched through Yellow Springs. After levelling Old Town north of Xenia, Clark's army headed for west Springfield. There, in the poorly named Battle of Piqua, Clark's army defeated a small Native army. I seems that Clark's route from Xenia to Springfield has not been properly mapped. Perhaps it is possible now.
