Harrison's Military Career

Harrison stayed in the Army until 1798, leaving with the rank of captain. He was posted to Fort Washington, near Cincinnati, Ohio, and served as aide-de-camp to General "Mad Anthony" Wayne. Wayne cited him for bravery at the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794, an attack on Fort Washington that the U.S. Army won. This opened much of the Ohio region to white settlement. Harrison was named commander of forces at Fort Washington when General Wayne died in 1795. Did Harrison's military career end in 1798?
