Did you know?

Indiana is a U.S. state in the Midwestern United States. It is the 38th-largest by area and the 17th-most populous of the 50 United States

The first inhabitants in what is now Indiana were the Paleo-Indians, who arrived about 8000 BCE after the melting of the glaciers at the end of the Ice Age. Divided into small groups, the Paleo-Indians were nomads who hunted large game such as mastodons. They created stone tools made out of chert by chipping, knapping and flaking.

After reaching the Saint Joseph River in present-day South Bend in 1679, French explorer René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle became the first European to travel into Indiana. Fur traders from France and Canada followed shortly after, bringing blankets, jewelry, tools, whiskey, and weapons to barter for Native American skins.

Sieur Juchereau founded the first commercial post near Vincennes in 1702. Sieur de Vincennes erected Fort Miami at Kekionga, which is today Fort Wayne, in 1715. Picote de Beletre, a Canadian, established Fort Ouiatenon on the Wabash River in 1717 to try to control Native American trading routes from Lake Erie to the Mississippi River.

The American Revolutionary War started in 1775, when colonists demanded self-government and independence from the British. Although the most of the battle took place along the East Coast, Patriot military chief George Rogers Clark appealed for an army to assist in the war against the British in the west. On February 25, 1779, Clark’s troops won key fights and gained control of Vincennes and Fort Sackville.

Clark was able to block off British forces attacking the eastern colonies from the west throughout the battle. His achievements are often recognized with altering the direction of the American Revolutionary War.
