Description:Caldwell's expedition[ edit ] Although the main British army under Lord Cornwallis had surrendered at Yorktown in October , virtually ending the war in the east, fighting on the western frontier continued. This was one of the largest forces sent against American settlements during the war. The expedition was called off, however, when scouts reported that a force under George Rogers Clark , whom the Indians feared more than any other commander, was about to invade the Ohio Country from Kentucky. Caldwell's army returned to the Mad River to oppose the invasion, but the attack never came. In fact, Clark did have a large armed boat patrolling the Ohio River, but he had no plans to invade.
