Taylor Takes Command


Captain Zachary Taylor has been placed in command of the garrison near this ("this" is Fort Knox, Vincennes, Indiana).  

Through the winter of 1811-12, the army, of course, suspended its operations, but in the following spring the Indians were joined by the British and the war was resumed with additional fury. The command of Fort Harrison on the Wabash was entrusted to Captain Taylor with a garrison of about fifty men. [Source]
