Clark Campaign 82
John Floyd to William Preston, Beargrass KY, 10/19/1782: The late attacks have <roused the Kentuckians also to make another effort to reduce the Shawanese. I shall march from here on this Tour the day after tomorrow; We Rendezvous at the mouth of Licking the first of Novr. We shall be able to bring about one thousand men to action, besides leaving a guard on the Ohio. . . . Our little country has received a prodigious shock from the savages since my last to you: Col. Trigg with 11 officers & 50 men from Lincoln, Col. John Todd & 13 privates from Fayette, fell the 19th of August at the lower lick on Licking in a very unequal conflict with the Enemy.> <Without . . . uncommon exertions amongst ourselves the Country must fall a sacrifice to the Enemy the next season. We now draw out every man that is able to bear arms.> 17CC143-144
