At the close of the war he went to Kentucky where he soon became engaged in many Indian campaigns of that state. In the battle of the Maumee in 1794 he was Brigadier General of the Kentucky Volunteers under General Anthony Wayne.
The following excerpt from an account of this battle is interesting: "All the historians agree that the defeat of General St. Clair in 1791 by the Indians of the Northwest territory was the most disastrous ever sustained by the American Army in its battles with the Indians. On the other hand, this defeat was retrieved by a most complete and decisive victory in a vast powerful horde at the Rapids of the Maumee in 1794...
Wayne's legion was on the right, its flank covered by the Maumee, one brigade of mounted volunteers was on the left under Brig. Gen Todd, the other was in the rear under Brig. Gen. Barbee"
