The Samuel Black Who Kept A Diary

An introduction to The Diary of Captain Samuel Black, War of 1812, published by the Clark County Historical Society’s says he “returned after his tour of duty, hopelessly ill of tuberculosis, and here, on 19 June 1814, he died.”  [see story linked below]

From my blog post entitled Urbana In The Wilderness:
From the Springfield News-Sun, a story that sprung from an 1812 war journal kept by a soldier, Samuel Black.
