This answer points out that according to Wookieepedia:

Lor San Tekka was an individual who lived on the Western Reaches planet of Jakku approximately 29 years after the Battle of Jakku. San Tekka was a follower of The Church of the Force, an underground faith of loosely affiliated worshipers of the Jedi ideals.

And presumably the crashed Imperial Star Destroyer that Rey spelunks at the beginning of The Force Awakens crashed during that battle.

But Wookieepedia is not a reference without backup links. What's the origin of this statement and what other types of information are out there?

What canonical sources tell us about the Battle of Jakku ?

  • Regarding the crashed Star Destroyer - read all about it in the canon book "Lost Stars" where you can find out what leads up to it crashing and the crash itself

  • @Richard: Some of the stuff in that article is hard to believe. Like the Rebellion just leaving any and all survivors on the planet to fend from themselves after the Empire retreated.

Regarding the crashed Star Destroyer and some of the space battle - read all about it in the Disney canon book "Lost Stars"

  • why a downvote - it's the only actual answer to the question so far, and it has the added bonus of being accurate. The question didn't ask for details as to the events, just what sources detailed the events.
