Scope Note: This is an inhabited place located on Wabash river, across from West Lafayette, near Fort Ouiatenon, the first European settlement in Indiana. It is noted for a nearby battlefield where, in the Battle of Tippecanoe, General William Henry Harrison defeated an Amerindian confederacy in 1811. The city was named for the Marquis de Lafayette, the French politician and military leader who commanded American Revolutionary troops, and it was laid out by William Digby in 1825.
