The Battle of the Thames is being held as a success by organizers.
The highlight of the weekend event was the re-enactment of Chief Tecumseh's last stand.
Organizers estimate more than 20,000 people turned out for the fall at the forks.
Tecumseh and his people were drawn into a fight against an advancing American division.
The First Nations leader lost his life in the battle 200 years ago.
