Marking Hull's Trace

The trace or trail of Gen. Hull was to enable his army with its artillery and baggage to pass from Dayton [Ohio] to Brownstown [Michigan], the outpost of the English army on the Canadian border.

The march from Dayton, where the army was brought together, to Springfield, was over the roads of that early day, and reached Urbana, an outpost of the Ohio civilization in May 1812.
