"The battle of sandusky was fought in and around the grove known as "Battle Island, " in what is now Crane Township, Wyandot county, three miles north, and half a mile east, of the courthouse in Upper sandusly. This spot has balways been readily identifed, by reason of the scars upon the trunks of the trees, made by the hachets of the Indians in getting out the bullets after the action. But the "Island" may now said to have disappeared. Cultivated fields mark the spot where the contest took place. Occasionally an interesting relic is turned up by the plowshare, to be preserved by the curious as a memento of the battle." {Footnote follows}
"The action took place on what is now the southeast quarter of section 17, of township 2 south, of range 14 east, of the goverment survey, nmow owned {1872} by G. Nace, extending eastward into what is now the southwest quarter of section 16 of the same township and range. The Spot is marked on the map of the Wyandot county of 1870, "Craw-ford's Battle Ground." It is correctly laid down by William Brown, on his map of the Wyandot Reservation."
