Levi Todd to Robert Todd (his brother), Lexington KY, 8/26/1782: <On the 16th Instant, in the morning an Express arrived from Bryant's Station informing us it was expected a Body of Indians lay round the Fort. I Set off with 30 men to see if it was so, and before I got there (which is five miles distant) was joined by 10 men from Daniel Boones [Station?]. I found the Place surrounded & intended to force our way in. Seventeen of the foremost Horsemen rushed in; but being attacked at the mouth of a Lane; the remainder, some on Horseback, and myself and Ten others on Foot, were forced to retreat, leaving one man killed, and having three wounded, one of whom died next morning, but the other two will recover.> Joined by brother John Todd, Trigg, and McGary and march in pursuit of the beseigers of Bryan's Station. <On the morning of the 18th we collected 182 men all on Horseback, and pursued the Enemy till 8 oclock in the monring of the 19th, when we got sight of them forming in a Ridge in a Loop of a River, about three Quarters of a Mile North of the lower blue Lick and over the Licking. We had then pursued about 40 miles. We rode up within 60 yards, dismounted, gave & sustained a heavy and general Fire. The ground was equally favorable to both Parties and the Timber good. The left wing rushed on & gained near 100 yards of ground. But the Right gave way, and the Enemy soon flanked us on that side, upon which the center gave way & shifted behind the left Wing. And immediately the whole broke in Confusion after the Action had lasted about five minutes. Our men suffered much in the Retreat, many Indians having mounted our men's Horses, haveing open woods to pass through to the River, and several were killed in the River. SEveral efforts were made to rally, but all in Vain. He that could remount a horse was well off, and he that could not saw no time for delay. Our Brother received a Ball in his left Breast, and was on Horseback when the men broke. He took a course I thought Dangerous, and as I never saw him afterwards, I suppose he never got over the River. Col: Trigg, Major Harlin, Major Bulger, Captains McBride, Gordon, KinKead, and Overton fell upon the ground, also our friend James Brown. Our number missing is about seventy-five. I think the number of the Enemy was at least 300, but many of the men think five hundred. Colo. Logan with 500 men went to the ground on the 24th, and found & buried about 50 of our dead men. They were all stript naked, scalped, & mangled in such a manner that it was hard to know one from another. Our Brother was not known.> CALENDAR OF VIRGINIA STATE PAPERS (Richmond, 1883; reprint New York: Kraus, 1968):3:333-334.

8/30/1782 CORRECTED COPY -- USE THIS! DB to Governor Harrison of Virginia, Boone's Station, 8/30/1782, 1: <Sir, <A Circumstance of Affairs Causes me to write to your Excellency as follows. On the 16th of this Instant, a Large number of Indians with some white men, attacted [sic] one of our fronteer [sic] Stations, known by the name of Bryan's Station. The seige continued from about Sunrise til about ten oclock the next Day, then they marched off. Notice being given to the Different Stations adjacent, we Imediately collected 181 Horsemen commanded by Colo. Jno. Todd: Including some of the Lincoln County Militia Commanded by Colo. Trigg, and having pursued about 40 miles, on the 19th Instant we Discovered the Enemy Lying in wait for us, on Discovery of which we formed our Column into one Single Line and march'd up in their front within about forty yards before there was a gun fired: Col: Trigg on the right, my SElf on the Left, Major McGary in the centre, Major Harlin with the advance party in the front -- and from the manner wee had form'd, it fell to my lot to bring on the attack, which was done with a very heavy [loss] on both Sides: and extended back the lines to Colo. Trigg, where the Enemy was so strong that the[y] Rushed up and Broke the right wing at the first fire. So the Enemy was immediately on our Backs, so we were obliged to Retreat with the loss of 77 of our men and 12 wounded. Afterwards we were Reinforced by Colo. Logan, which with our own men amounted to 460 Light Horse, with which we march'd to the Battle Ground again. But found the enemy were gone off. So we proceeded to burry the Dead -- which were 43 found on the ground, and many more we Expect Lay about that we did not see, as we Dould not Tarry to search very close, being Both Hungry and weary, and some wat Dubious that the enemy might not be gone quite off, and by what discovery we could make we conclude the number of Indians to exceed 400 -- now the whole of our militia of this Country does not exceed 130.> continued

Col. Benjamin Logan to Gov. Harrison, 8/31/1782: <I beg leave to present your Excellency & Council with one of the most melancholly events that has happened in all this Western Country . . . a total defeat at the BIG BLUE LICKS on LICKING.> Complains that the strategy of concentrating resources and men in the hands of Clarke in the west leaves the eastern part of the territory defenceless. Argues for more support. <Before I conclude I must beg leave to suggest to your Excellency & Council, that a defensive war cannot be carried on with Indians, and the Inhabitants remain in any kind of safety. For unless you can go to their Towns and scourge them, they weill never make a peace; but on the contrary keep parties constantly in your country to kill; and the plunder they get, answers them instead of Trade.> Included a diagram of the battle (not reprinted) with the following note: <The indians kept the path from Bryants to the licks, and when Colo. Todd arrived at the Top of the hill on this side of the river, then enemy made a shew of ab't 30 in the bend. Our men marched over upon the Hill. The indians had a very strong line in front which extended from one point of the river to the other. They had flankers and also a party in the rear in order to prevent a retreat. As the river was very deep only at the licks and the clifs so steep that a passage was impracticable only where they first marched in -- thus circumstanced the Savages, sure of victory rushed immediately up and threw our men into confusion. What escaped returned mostly by way of the Lick -- many were killed after they were made prisoners, as they were seen tied. <From Bryant's Station to the Blue licks ab't 40 miles & from thence to the Ohia ab't 20 or 25. The Bent of the river was generally ab't 1/2 mile over & from the top of the ridge each way made down small dreans [sic] -- in these places lay many indians undiscovered untill the attack begun. It appears near all the warriors' on this side of De Troit were on this expedition; some allow 600 or more.> CALENDAR OF VIRGINIA STATE PAPERS (Richmond, 1883; reprint New York: Kraus, 1968):3:281-283.

DB, Levi Todd, J. Patterson, R. Netherland, Eli Clurland, Wm. Henderson, Wm. McConnall, John Craig, Wm. McConnell to Gov. Harrison of VA, Lexington, Fayette countyKY, 9/11/1782, 2: CORRECTED COPY -- USE THIS! <Sir, <The Officers, Civil as well as Military, of this County, beg the attention of your Excellency & the H'ble Council. The number of the Enemy that lately penetrated into our County, their Behaviour; adding to this our late unhappy defeat at the Blue Licks, fill us with the greatest concern & anxiety. the Loss of our worthy officers & Souldiers who fell there the 19th of August, we sensibly feel & deem our situation truly Alarming. We can scarcely behold a sopt of Earth, but what reminds us of the fall of some fellow adventurer massacred by SAvage bands. Our number of militia decreases. Our widows & orphans are numerous, our officers and worthiest men fall a sacrifice. In short sir, our settlement, hitherto formed at the Expence of Treasure & much Blood seems to decline, & if something is not speedily done, we doubt will wholly be depopulated. the Executive we believe think often of us & wish to protect us, but Sir, we believe any military operations tht for 18 months have been carried on in Consequence of Orders from the Executive, have rather been detrimental than Beneficial. Our Militia are called on to do duty in a manner that has a tendancy to protect Jefferson County, or rather Louisville, a Town without Inhabitants, a Fort situated in such a manner, that the Enemy coming with a design to Lay waste [to] our Country, would scarcely come with one Hundred miles of it, & our own Frontier open & unguarded. Our Inhabitants are discouraged. tis now near two years since the division of the County & no Surveyor has ever appeared among us, but has by appointment from time to time deceived us. our principal expectations of strength are from him. during his absence from the County Claimants of Land disappear, when in otherwise, they would be an additional strength.> continued

Col. John Williams to Proprietors of Transylvania, Boonesborough, 1/3/1776, 1: <. . . Upon consideration, I have thought that the numerous incidental expenses were so great that some way outht to be fallen upon to defray them without breaking in upon the moneys arising from the sale of the lands, and that the two dollars for entering, &c., and the other two for filing up the deeds, counterparts, annexing seals and plots, &c., was more money than the services of those offices absolutely required; I, therefore, have reserved out of each office, one dollar, to answer the purpose of defraying those extraordinary expenses; and the offices are left well worth the acceptance of persons capable of filling them with credit. The number of entries on our book is now upwards of nine hundred, a great part of which was made before I came to this place when people could make entries withou money and without price; the country abounded with land-mongers; since there is two dollars exacted on the entry made, people are not quite so keen, though I make no doubt but all who can comply with the terms will endeavor to save their lands; and as many people who have got entry on the book are now out of the country, and cannot possibly pay up the entry money immediately, I have thought proper to advertise that every person who has made entry on the book, and paid no money, that they come in and pay up the entrance money by the first of April, and take out their warrants of survey, or their several entries will, after that time, be considered as vacated, and liable to be entered by any other person whatever.> continued

Col. John Williams to Proprietors of Transylvania, Boonesborough, 1/3/1776, 4A: <On Saturday, about noon, being the 23d, Colonel Campbell, with a couple of lads, (Sanders and McQuinney) went across the river. On the opposite bank they parted. Campbell went up the river, about two hundred Yards, and took up a bottom. The two lads, without a gun, went straight up the hill. About ten minutes after they parted, a gun and a cry of distress was heard, and the alarm given that the Indians had shot Colonel Campbell. We made to his assistance. He came running to the landing, with one shoe off, and said he was fired on by a couple of Indians. A party of men was immediately dispatched, under the command of Colonel Boone, who went out, but could make no other discovery than two Moccasin tracks whether Indians or not, could not be determined. We had at that time, over the river, hunting &c., ten or a dozen men, in different parties -- part, or all of whom, we expected to be killed, if what Colonel Campbell said was true; but that, by many, was doubted. Night came on; several of the hunters returned, but had neither seen nor heard of Indians nor yet of the two lads. We continued in this state of suspence till Wednesday, when a party of men sent out to make search for them, found McQuinney, killed and scalped, in a corn-field, at about three miles distance from town, on the north side of the river. Saunders could not be found, nor has yet been heard of. On Thursday, a ranging party of fifteen men, under the command of Jesse Benton, was dispatched to scour the woods, twenty or thirty miles round, and see if any further discovery could be made. To those men we gave two shillings per day, and five pounds for every scalp they should produce. After they went out, our hunters returned, one at a time, till they all came in safe, Sauders excepted, who no doubt has shared McQuinney's fate. On Sunday the 31st day of the month, our rangers returned, without doing anything more than convincing themselves that the Indians had, immediately on doing the murder, ran off far northward, as they discovered their tracks thirty or forty miles towards the Ohio making that way.> continued

H. Caperton to Gov. of VA, 10/4/1792: <When I was appointed to the command of a Company of Volunteer Militia, ordered to the defence of Greenbriar & Kenawa, Col. Boon Contracted to furnish these men with rations, but from some cause or other failed. This put me under the necessity of employing other persons to do the business, making myself responsible for the money, & now stand bound for the amount of rations furnished my Company, no part of which has been paid. The Executive also directed Col. Boon to convey the ammunition allowed from Point of Fork to Greenbrier, in this he also failed, this compelled me to purchase and supply the men myself, for which I am bound to individuals. From these circumstances I am induced to make application to your Hon'ble board for a draft on the Treasury for a sum adequate to defray these charges.> CALENDAR OF VIRGINIA STATE PAPERS (Richmond, 1884; reprint New York: Kraus, 1968) 6:118.

Col. Levi Todd to Gov. Henry of VA, Fayette county, 6/22/1786: <The extreme distance from the seat of Government, and the few good opportunities of safe conveyance, rendered it difficult to maintain a regularly organized Militia, especially in the unsettled state of the Country and the rapid increase in population. To remedy this, a number of Blank Commissions should be sent, to be used as occasion should require. Since Col. Boone's removal [to Limestone?], he had made every effort to regulate the militia. He cannot make an accurate return, but the number, exclusive of officers, is about 1,100. Something should be done to secure the Lives and property of the Frontier Inhabitants who have suffered this Six months past as much, and were exposed to as many Inroads of the SAvages as we did in that length of Time through the whole course of the war (particular actions accepted). And that nothing but regulation and well-laid plans is wanting to put us in a situation to distress them and retaliate at pleasure, without making any application to the Eastern parts of the State. . . . I think it probable a Separation will not only shortly take place, tho' I am at a loss to Judge. The Kentucky people appear less unanimous than formerly, and a greater variety of Sentiment prevail. I could therefore wish that the attention of the Legislature and Executive, to the welfare of Kentucky, might not be in any respect withdrawn until we are in a Situation to plan and execute for Ourselves.> CALENDAR OF VIRGINIA STATE PAPERS (Richmond, 1884; reprint New York: Kraus, 1968) 4:151.

W. Ancrum to ?, Detroit, 10/13/1786, 1: An old Potawatomie chief from the Huron village near the Shawanee towns reports <that two Shawanese Indians arrived there from the Shawanese Towns and brought intelligence that a large body of Americans on horse back, had surprized the Indians assembled there, killed many of them, taken away Prisoners, and dispersed the rest, and destroy'd the Towns. . . . Whatever body of men may have come against the Indian Towns, I do not believe they have come from Fort Pit, or by the authority of Congress, but from the Falls of the Ohio & Kentucke &c.> Further note 10/15/1786: <A letter is just arrived from Simon Girty the Interpreter from Upper Sandusky, to Capt McKee, a copy of which I here inclose. . . . He is a faithful trusty fellow, and ever has been a staunch friend to Government, I have known him at least Twenty years, and am sure that any intelligence he sends may be depended on.> The Girty letter to Capt. Alexander McKee, Upper Sandusky, 10/11/1786: <The American Army came into the Town at 12 o'clock in the day [of the 8th instant]; and some time before the Army had arrived in Town, there came in a Deserter, who told the Indians that the Yankee Army was coming, but the Indians would not believe the Deserter, that they were coming when the Army appeared in sight. Shortly after the Indians of the Maycockey Town, on seeing them rose their Yankee colours to receive them, but their hoisting their colours was to no purpose, the Army immediately destroy'd the Town, then proceeded to Wakitumikie Town, and destroy'd that likewise; then proceeded from thence to Your House and destroy'd that, immediately from thence proceed'd to Blue Jackets and brought that immediately to the ground; and then they returned instantly back to Wakitumikis and there encamped and remain'd on the ground that night, and next day made a Retreat back again. Whether they have mae a total Retreat or not I cannot tell as yet. . . . The number of Indians that were kill'd I do not know, but in the Town where Capt. Eliot lived there were 10 Indians found lying in the Town dead, and among them was the Chief of the Town was dead slain and an Indian named Shade and another one Messquaughenacke, the Indians there do say the Yankeys tyed him up and Burned him, and Mr. Coons Brother is likewise kill'e; the number which is kill'e I do not know yet, but they have taken the women & children prisoners along with them.> continued

Caperton to George Clendenin, County Lieutenant, 5/6/1792: <Being directed by the Execuive to raise a Company of volunteers for the defense of this County and Greenbrier, I have made every possible exertion in my power for the complesion thereof, But finding that Col.
