Fountain in modern day Jackson, Michigan
From Michigan history:
Jackson...is situated in what at an early period was a swamp and one of the most unfavorable favorable spots for a city. It has overcome these natural disadvantages and is now a beautiful place. A French trader, Baptiste Boreaux, claims to have established a trading post there in 1815.
*Two soldiers of Harrison's Army, McDonagh and Limp, were captured and brought to this place the meeting of the trails during the War of 1812 and were probably tortured by the Pottawatomies.
