The Mirror Newspaper, which serves Waterville, Whitehouse, and Monclova, recently announced its 2019 General’s Heroes, honoring residents who are outstanding community leaders and volunteers. RCO Attorney Julie Wiley was recognized for her leadership as chairman of the Fallen Timbers Battlefield Preservation Commission. The Battle of Fallen Timbers celebrated its 225th Anniversary in 2019. This battle is noted as one of the most significant battles in American history with the outcome determining rights to live in frontier lands that would ultimately become eight Midwestern states. This battle changed the fate of every nation involved: Native American, British, Canadian, and French.
Passionate about American history, Julie and her committee created a five-day celebration last August that included encampments, musical performances, flag ceremonies, battle re-enactments, and tours.
In addition to serving as President of the FTBPC board, Julie is involved with the Ohio War of 1812 Bicentennial Board, Fort Jennings Historical Society, Ohio Historical Society, and the Girl Scouts of Northwest Ohio.
