Summary
This collection includes a photocopied and carbon copy, typed document from William M. Crockett regarding waging war with Indians in the Northwest Territory, specifically in 1812
Biographical or historical data
"Battle of Spurs Defeat" took place in Tippecanoe County, Indiana Territory, on November 22, 1812. The force of sixty soldiers, led by Lieutenant Colonels Miller and Willcox, had ridden to the site of the body of a soldier named Dunn to retrieve it for burial, leading to an ambush. It resulted in the deaths of eighteen Kentucky soldiers at the hands of Native Americans. The name of the battle apparently refers to the use of spurs on their horses by remaining soldiers to escape the slaughter.Information found within the collection."Spurs Defeat".
