MONROE, Mich. (AP) — River Raisin National Battlefield Park has opened an art gallery area that will feature revolving exhibits by local artists.

Superintendent Scott J. Bentley says in a news release that paintings, drawings, prints, photos and other forms will be highlighted. They'll feature early Frenchtown themes and the Battle of the River Raisin.

River Raisin National Battlefield Park was established in 2010 to commemorate and interpret the January 1813 battles during and after the War of 1812.

U.S. forces won the first battle, but the second ended in their most disastrous defeat during the war. It included mass killings of the wounded.

The U.S. used the battle cry "Remember the Raisin" that year in victory at the Battle of the Thames, in which the Shawnee's Chief Tecumseh died.
