[ARCHIVED] War of 1812 Siege of Old Fort Madison
Come learn from Old Fort Madison's interpreters as they recreate the 2nd siege of Old Fort Madison, which was part of the largest coordinated Native American offensive in U.S. History. Tecumsah attacked Fort Madison, Fort Harrison and Fort Wayne all within a few hours of each other. Fort Madison survived the siege because the Native Americans ran out of ammunition. This siege reenactment takes place every year the weekend of Tri-State Rodeo and teaches us about our country's past.
