First Heard Of War On The March

A chapter of the history of the War of 1812 in the Northwest: ...:

The marches [from Cincinnati, through Dayton, Urbana and further north] were easy as a wagon trace had to be opened and block houses as posts had to be built at several points. The army passed through the wilds of Ohio, reaching and crossing the Maumee River at the foot of the rapids in fine health on the 30th of June, and on the 3rd day of July, first heard of the Declaration of War which had been made on the 18th of June.
