Excerpt from Extracts From the History of Cincinnati and the Territory of Ohio: Showing the Trials and Hardships of the Pioneers in the Early Settlement of Cincinnati and the West

While it is doubtless true that the story of the settlement of Cincinnati has been often told, yet it must be admitted that but comparatively few of our citizens have any definite knowledge of the events which first led to the exploration of the Ohio Valley, the causes which for so many years deferred its settlement, and the perils and hardships endured by the pioneers; while most of them are familiar with the more important historical epochs. The ancient landmarks are being swept away by the demands of an ever increasing population. The old pioneers are falling like ripe grain before the sickle. Events of purely local interest are rapidly passing from memory; and the fact that the settlement of Cincinnati marked an era in the history of our common country full of interest to all, has been lost sight of or disregarded. To remedy this, to present a truthful, impartial, and readable account of the historical events which gave the first impetus to settling the great Northwest; the explorations of the Ohio Company; the border wars, which so long prevented its actual occupancy; its final settlement; the campaigns of Harmar, St. Clair, and Wayne; the hardships, the trials, and struggles of the pioneers, and their mode of life; the names of the founders of the city; its rapid growth and brilliant future, the author has devoted much time during the past several years, and the result of his labors are soon to be published in two large volumes. From the collection of historical facts colated for that purpose, the narrative contained in the following pages has been extracted, condensed, and published in a cheap form, to place within the reach of all matters of peculiar and particular interest in this centennial year.
