River Raisin National Battlefield Park

Description:

River Raisin National Battlefield Park preserves, commemorates, and interprets the January 1813 battles of the War of 1812 and their aftermath in Monroe and Wayne counties in SE Michigan. The Battle resulted in the greatest victory for Tecumseh's American Indian confederation and the greatest defeat for the U.S. The resulting rally cry "Remember the Raisin" spurred support for the rest of the war.
