1791 marked one of the worst military defeats the United States Army ever suffered. As Major General Arthur St. Clair led both regular Army and militia levee soldiers to the banks of the Wabash River, Native Americans rose to stop them--and stop the Army they did. In this fascinating study, Richard Lytle gives historians, genealogists, and local history buffs a monumental resource for the study of St. Clair's soldiers. Not only a detailed narrative of this campaign, this is also the most complete roster of soldiers available, and a comprehensive description of their origins, equipment and organization. This resource assembles in one place both the narrative and hard to find reference materials that genealogists and historians need to research and better understand this seminal event in America's westward growth.

...what Lytle provides is a virtual treasure trove of biographies of the officers and rosters of each formation. While he describes the raising of the forces and the campaign in 135 pages, his detailed biographical data and unit rosters run to 285 pages! The officer biographies are great reading and create a vivid picture of the society of the early republic. While this is not the definitive story of St. Clair's defeat, it is an indispensable account of that event.--On Point: The Journal of Army History
