|Battle of the Thames|
Based upon the positioning of Simrall's Unit in this old map, it would appear that the heavy fighting was away from Elisha. At the time of the battle the many trees provideds ome cover for the troops. The Battle of the Thames (or as Canadians refer to it - The Battle of Moraviantown) was a decisive victory for the United States against Britain and was near the end of action in the northwest. Soon the military engagements shifted to the east coast near Washington, D.C. and later to the southern states.
In the following map the red markers show the army's route to battle. The red star is the location of the Battle of the Thames. The green markers display the route returning to Kentucky.
