The oil-on-canvas painting measures twenty-two feet, nine inches by seventeen feet and provides its viewers with the artist’s interpretation of the scene that took place at Fort Greene Ville, Ohio during the summer of 1795. The Treaty of Greene Ville was signed one year after the Battle of Fallen Timbers concluded with the United States army, led by General Anthony Wayne, defeating an American Indian force led by Blue Jacket of the Shawnee. Fierce fighting had made settling in the Ohio region risky for decades, and members on both sides were ready for peace. This desire is made clear by the opening article of the treaty, which reads, “Henceforth all hostilities shall cease; peace is hereby established, and shall be perpetual; and a friendly intercourse shall take place between the said United States and Indian tribes.”
