Short Chronology: The War of 1812 in the Northwest
"This chronology is not in any sense a complete list of the military events and actions of the War of 1812 in the Northwest. Many smaller skirmishes are omitted and only those of major importance to the overall result are included. On the whole, the chronology is meant as a guide to the military campaigns. For this reason, certain groupings of actions and expeditions have been made. For the most part, Robert McAfee's History of the Late War in the Western Country was used as a guide. Though written in 1815 by a veteran, it has not been superceded as the outstanding work on the war in the Northwest." 26 pages. CITATION.

Executive Journal of the Northwest Territory, 1788-1803
"In it are recorded all of the official acts and communiques of the governor, Arthur St. Clair, and the secretary, Winthrop Sargent. Singly and individually, it is the most important historical manuscript dealing with the Northwest Territory from its inception in 1788 to its demise with the creation of the state of Ohio. This transcription is an attempt to make as true a copy as possible of the original." 556 pages. CITATION.
