George Rogers Clark signing treaty with Shawnee

Differing styles of diplomacy are apparent as Shawnee elders bear offerings to Col. George Rogers Clark, who is seated at a desk, after his victory at the Battle of Piqua (Pickawe) in Ohio in 1780. Tecumseh, future leader of the Shawnee, witnessed this battle as a young boy. NOTE: 1923 photo of mural by Arthur Thomas.
