The glacial geology of the area north of the Great Bend of the Wabash River in west-central Indiana (Fig.1), 1) illustrates important early developed principles regarding multiple continentalglaciation, the movements of adjoining ice lobes, and the interrelated deposits. Perhaps the first documentation of a lithologically definable till stratigraphy that is basic to interpretation of glacial movement and sedimentation throughout much of the Midwest was made in the Great Bend area. A half century after the first documentation was made, the till stratigraphy here would emerge as the regionally mappable sequence. Further, it would illustrate cross-cutting relationships of morainal ridges...
