This is a model of a statue of Chief Little Turtle that resides in Covington, Kentucky along the south bank of the Ohio River and the west bank of the Licking River.
Chief Little Turtle lived from 1752 to 1812. The plague states the following about him:
“This great Miami war chief fought to protect the indian hunting grounds of Kentucky and the villages of southern Ohio from the onrush of American settlers. Little Turtle twice led a confederation of Miami, Shawnee and Deleware Indians in victory against American Armies. In October 1790 he defeated an American army led by General Josiah Hamer. In November 1791 he defeated an army led by General Arthur St. Clair. Between battles, Little Turtle hunted and fished in this part of northern Kentucky.
After the indians were defeated at Fallen Timbers in 1794, Little Turtle joined signing the Treaty of Greenville in 1795. He declared, ‘I am the last to sign it, and will be the last to break it.’ He kept his word.”
