Description: Fort Meigs was the site of the first British setback during the War of 1812. The British had taken Forts Detroit, Mackinac, and Dearborn. Only Fort Wayne in Indiana territory was able to defend itself. Fort Meigs defended itself for nine days under the leadership of General William Henry Harrison in May 1813 that ended up turning the tide of the war.
