Fort Wayne, May 18, 2014: The Maumee Valley Heritage Corridor (MVHC) will host a public program at the Fallen Timbers Memorial at 2:00pm on Sunday, May 25th, beginning at 2:00pm.
The Maumee Valley is the site of the earliest military operations and battles of the United States following the writing of the Constitution in 1787, preceding the national celebration of Memorial Day by many years. The Maumee Valley Heritage Corridor has chosen the Memorial Day holiday as an appropriate time to remember the participants of these early battles, both friend and foe alike.
Our May 25th program will begin at 2pm, with a brief historical overview of the military operations in the region from 1790 to 1794, followed by visiting the markers and memorials located at the monument site.
Each year Maumee Valley Heritage Corridor provides free public programs on a variety of heritage, environmental, and recreational topics. The May 25th program is funded in part by a grant from the Ohio Humanities Council.
