    You might think it was Battle of the Little Big Horn, but it wasn't. I just learned about it today. It was St. Clair's Defeat (aka the Battle of Wabash River). The opponent was the Western Confederacy of Native Americans. U.S. casualties were 933 (not including women and children). Not surprisingly, it was the largest victory ever won by Native Americans.

    Do you know how much of the present territory of the United States was in control of the Native Americans at the time of this battle?...

    I'm not knowledgeable enough to give you a direct answer, but the interactive map linked to below will enable you to trace the loss of native control over North America. (Instructions on its use is on the "splash screen.")
