The Coming Attack On Fort Wayne

The gist of General Harrison's letter from The Pictorial History of Fort Wayne, Indiana: A Review of Two ..., Volume 1


"Writing from Piqua on the 5th of September, Harrison pictured conditions to the secretary of war. Said he:
'I received information last night that a British army left Detroit on the 13th ultimo for the purpose of attacking Fort Wayne and, if successful, Fort Harrison [near Terre Haute] and Vincennes.'"
