Transporting Military Stores

Camp [Fort] Russell was mentioned:

Fort Russell (1804 - 1814?), Edwardsville [Illinois] This five-gun stockaded blockhouse was the headquarters and main supply depot for the territorial militia. U.S. Army Regulars were briefly here in 1812. Also referred to as Camp Russell. The guns were supposedly taken from old Fort de Chartres. Located one and one-half miles northwest of town. [Source]
