Battleground Ave, Battle Ground, IN, US

The Tippecanoe Battlefield Park preserves the location of the Battle of Tippecanoe fought on November 7, 1811.

The 16-acre site of the battle was deeded to the State of Indiana by John Tipton, a veteran of the fight, on November 7, 1836, the twenty-fifth anniversary of the battle. The site was used for a number of major political rallies during its earlier years; those most significant being on May 29, 1840 in favor of William Henry Harrison's bid for the White House attended by 30,000 people.

It was designated a National Historical Landmark in 1960.

I was hoping that one of these would be dropped close to my home base. This one was close enough. After a 45 minute drive down some country roads, I found “Bill”. I was staring at his and reading the clue and I kept looking at the museum. Then it dawned on me. I use to hear the phrase, “my right, your left.” almost everyday during PT formation. With that in mind, I went to the right spot. I look forward to seeing you all in a few days. Bucketto
