Located on the banks of the Wabash River in Vincennes, Indiana, the George Rogers Clark National Historical Park commemorates the American victory at the Battle of Vincennes on February 23-25, 1779. Built on where historians believe the site of Fort Sackville was, the George Rogers Clark Memorial features a seven-and-a-half-foot tall statue of Clark, who was 25 at the time of the battle, and seven murals depicting Clark’s expedition to Vincennes by Ezra Winter. Near the memorial is a visitor center with interpretative programs about the battle and more information about the Vincennes Historic District.
