While the main action of the Revolution swirled along the Atlantic seaboard. Ohio was a no man's land between the Colonist's Fort Pitt and the British Fort Detroit. A campaign to neutralize Detroit and win the allegiance of the Indians in Ohio was instigated by Gen. George Washington in 1778, and in the fall of that year Fort Laurens was erected on the banks of the Tuscarawas River as the planned first step was to secure the western frontier. But logistics, supplies and more doomed the plan to failure. Fort Laurens remains the deepest and the only Revolutionary War military settlement in what is now Ohio. Today it is a historical monument and archeological site. Maps and details bring the story of Fort Laurens to life along with engaging, detailed and well researched text.
