Riassunto: Excerpt from Historical Sketch of Jersey County, Illinois: Delivered at Jerseyville, July 4th, 1878

Within the current year, an editorial in the Christian Union expressed some surprise at the idea of the great West participating to any great extent in the rejoicings of our Nations Centennial, because the West had only been settled and developed within the last fifty years. It would, perhaps, excite a smile to assure the learned writer, that on the score of antiquity Illinois is but very little behind Plymouth Rock, and that the smoke of Saratoga had barely settled when a conquest for the American arms was achieved, without shedding a drop of blood, which added territory as great in extent as the inhabited area of the original thirteen colonies. Ninety-eight years ago to-day, Col. George Rogers Clark, with one hundred and fifty-three men, acting under commission from Patrick Henry, then Governor of Virginia, captured Fort Gage and the village of Kaskaskia from the British, and thereby ended forever the rule of England in the Valley of the Mississippi. It is not my purpose to dwell on Jthe particular incidents of this expedition. When I think of the audacity of the design, the small means at command, the hardihood displayed, with the splendor of the result, I can sympathize fully with the sentiment of Joe Daviess, when speaking of Clark and his achievements: When I think of this I feel like Moses at the burning bush Put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. J-Kaskaskia, Cahokia, and Vincennes fell successively into the- hands of the conqueror, and an empire was redeemed from the Jbaleful influence of British rule.

True, Vincennes, while held by a sergeant and one private, was recaptured by Lieut.-Gov. Hamilton the British hairbuyer, as he was called by the long-knives; but in February following, Clark marched across the country and retook the il post, and Lieut.-Gov. Hamilton with it.

Product Description: Excerpt from Historical Sketch of Jersey County, Illinois: Delivered at Jerseyville, July 4th, 1878

Three hundred family boats arrived at the Falls of the Ohio in the spring of 1789, mostly destined for Kentucky. Among the immigrants to Illinois we note the names of James Moore, Shadrach Bond, James Garrison, Robert Kidd, and Larkin Rutherford, the two latter having been with Clark. They were from Virginia and Maryland. With their families, they, without molestation in those perilous times, crossed the Alle ghanies, descended the Ohio, stemmed the Mississippi, and landed safely at Kaskaskia. James Piggott, John Doyle, Robert Whitehead, and a Mr. Bowen, soldiers in Clark's expe dition, also shortly after settled in Illinois. In 1785 came Joseph Ogle, Joseph Worley, and James Andrews, all from Vir ginia, and each with a large family. In the following year the settlement was further augmented by the arrival of James Lemen, George Atchinson, and David Waddell, with their fam ilies, beside several others. Col. Todd was killed in the battle of Blue Licks, Ky., August 18, 1782, and was succeeded in com mand of Illinois county by a Frenchman named Timothy de Montbrun, concerning whose administration, either as to acts performed or the time it continued, we have no certain account.
