Boone Captivity 2
BCAPTIVITY2 John Shane statement of Septimus Schull, grandson of Daniel Boone, written for his children, ca. 1833: <Boone was taken, at the time he was making salt, at the Lower Blue Licks. He surrendered his men, on condition that they should not be made to run the gauntlet. They stacked their arms, and then the indians made Boone run. He made no treaty for himself. He butted down the big indian and got through. . . . At Detroit the other prisoners were exchanged, but the indians had refused to part with Boone. The English gave him a horse and saddle, and told the indians they must let no one take them from him. Boone made his escape from captivity, and got home the very day of Squire Boone's getting back from N.C.> 11CC52
