When the Revolutionary War started, Colonel Ebenezer Zane, as founder of Wheeling, changed the name of the fort in that town to Fort Henry in honor of Governor Patrick Henry of Virginia. As Colonel of the Virginia Militia he participated in the defense of Fort Henry at the "first siege", September 1, 1777, against a large force of Indians and others which was the first serious attempt of the British and their savage allies against the western border settlements after the outbreak of the Revolution.

He was in command at Fort Henry, September 11, 1782, when a company of British regulars, under Captain Pratt, and a large body of Indians, laid siege to the fort.
