The Battle of Peckuwe (Piqua) was the western most battle of the American Revolution.
It was fought just outside of Springfield at the current site of George Rogers Clark Park on Aug. 8, 1780.
General George Rogers Clark organized an army of 1,000 Kentuckians to move north against the British and their Indian allies, the local Shawnee.
At the Heritage Center, there are two portraits of Clark and a mural by John Buxton depicting the battle, along with 13-year-old future Shawnee chief, Tecumseh.
Nearby are remnants from the battle including cannonballs, tomahawks, a rifle, and a rare walking bow, all recovered from the field almost 240 years ago.
