Sandusky And Sixteen Miles

The scope of the book, Old Fort Sandoski of 1745 and the "Sandusky Country", by Lucy Elliot Keeler:

"My story will be confined to the sixteen miles which separate Fort Stephenson at the Lower Falls of the Sandusky river, (now Fremont), from the banks of Lake Erie, at the mouth of the Portage river, (Port Clinton), the point visited by all Indians and French in coming from or going to Detroit and the northwest; and later the point from which General Harrison's army left American soil to pursue the British in Canada in his successful campaign terminating at the Battle of the Thames, October 5, 1813."
