[TDIH] Little Turtle Crushes American Army

On November 5, 1790, Mihšihkinaahkwa (The Little Turtle), a Miami native-american chief, led a fight to contain the northern expansion of the newly independent american nation. He managed to repel assaults and to convince more and more tribe chieftains to join him.

After a successful campaign, peace was settled and he has been honored as a worthy opponent by the US ever since. It’s one of the idiosyncrasies of the new settlers that the Miami tribe has no land left today.
