A minor battle of the American Revolutionary War took place here in the Dunes. A marker, erected by the Indiana branch of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) reads:
At Le Petit Fort, near this site, a battle was fought on December 5, 1780 between American forces under the command of Lt. Thomas Brady and Jean Baptiste Hamelin and British forces under the command of Dahreau de Quindre.
