Kaskaskia Prisoners


"On the Evening of the 4th of July we got within three miles of the Town Kaskaskias, having a River of the same name to cross to the Town. After making ourselves ready for anything that might happen, we marched after night to a Farm that was on the same side of the River about a mile above the Town, took the family Prisoners, and found plenty of Boats to cross In; and in two hours transported ourselves to the other shore with the greatest silence."
