Geocache Description:


Celebrating a victory for the young United States over British forces, the George Rogers Clark National Historical Park in Indiana is located at the site of where Fort Sackville was believed to be.

Fort Sackville was under British control in 1779 when a group of frontiersmen led by George Rogers Clark (older brother of William Clark of Lewis and Clark fame) successfully defeated the British resulting in their capture. This defeat insured American control of the frontier area almost equal in size to the original thirteen colonies.

The Sackville victory was not the first achievement of the great general Clark. He was sent by the state of Virginia a few years earlier to protect that state's interest in the Northwest Territory. While doing this he founded Louisville, Kentucky and captured several other British forts in the area.
