Quot providing for taking two thirds of the Stock on the part of the state for a rail Road from Madison to on april 21st, he wrote to the same As follows Quot in the event of the enemy Landing at lower Sandusky that Post cannot be in the life of com. Perry by j. M. Nilea it stated that Quot the command of the Lake which the British possessed at this period gave great facility to their operations. They made Many Hoe til movements upon the b Orts at lower Sandusky Cleveland and but no attack was mad upon any of the forts except that of lower Sar. Dusky the result of which was. So highly honorable to the Gallant Youthful hero who commanded it this was Young Rooha a not 21 years old what was commanded by Harrison to leave the fort and the dastardly order was for him Quot to flee Quot Andl leave the whole country open to the inroads of the Savages and the merciless Proctor. There would then have been no Barrier to the Indian Tomahawk and British scalping knife and thousands of Hildi and women would have been sacrificed to the cot Ardice of Harrison who was at the head of a sure client army to put the British to flight. That tha Ohio soldiers were nol to be depended upon Wail a libel of Harrison who wished to avoid fighting but to s history on the fir to of August Proctor with Fjor goo regulars and 7 or 800 appeared before lower Sandusky which Harrison Taid coi old not by Satu and although the British forces were so Dispo Edas to Cut offal re treat and a to in of truce sent demanding the surrender of the fort or if not to be threatened with the fury of the Savages and a general massacre c d. Croghan returned fur answer that he was pre Liard to meet any Force which they might have at their disposal. Col. C. Had about 130 Brave followers who gallantly defended the fort from the brisk fire of the enemy s gun boats and a howitzer on Shore and 3 six a grounders placed Only 250 Yards from the pickets. This Choai As did with this Small Force after Gen. Harrison had abandoned the furl and was afraid to risk a Battle with 2.300 men who themselves were ready for Battle and who desired to see the White of the enemy s Eye the fort was then stormed by 500 British in close columns but they soon had to leave the americans to themselves altho the Cannon of the British was pouring m one continued fire. The enemy lost from Loo to 200 men besides some of their bestow i Cera. The americans lost one Man and 7 were wounded. While the Battle was going on Harrison was so stationed. S to hear the enemy s guns and he would neither go himself nor permit his men to go and relieve the fort. He said during the Battle that Quot 1118 blood Croglin s be on his own head Wash my hands of what was the result a Battle was won and our frontiers saved from a ruthless invader. And for this Uatisoni called Gol. Croghan before a court martial. But Congress gave col. C. A sword in Honor of his prowess. Still Harrison is now called by the f eds the Champion who rescued us from proctors he who called the militia Quot beef eaters Quot and who said the Ohio soldiers Quot could not be depended we Trust they the survivors of the late War and their remember Harrison s libel on Quot their characters and in the insult he offered to the state besides this they should not forget his assertion that if the enemy landed at lower Sandusky that Post could not be it was saved by the Gallant colonel Croghan and 130 men when Harrison was Only a few Miles Distant with a Fine army.
