From the foreword…”The story of the part played by Fort Jefferson in the frontier history of the Miami Valley and the Old Northwest is based largely on the original journals of men who took a leading part in the erection and defense of this post, special emphasis being placed on the records and reports of Maj. Gen. Arthur St. Clair; Col. Winthrop Sargent, Secretary and Adjutant General; Major Ebenezer Denny, Aide-de-Camp to St. Clair; Lieut. Daniel Bradley, Subaltern at the fort, and Thomas Irwin, a wagon driver with the army. Valuable additional information has been derived from references by various writers. “
