Explore the origins of Clark County at the nearby Peckuwe Village battle site. The Peckuwe Village was once a large settlement of Shawnee Indians and their British allies, located at the current George Rogers Clark Park. In 1790, the American Colonel Clark attacked the British stockade and drove the Shawnee out of Clark County. The battle was the largest of the American Revolution west of the Allegheny Mountains.
