Summary
The index card states: "Original manuscript of Thomas Wood Stevens, author of Pageant at Vincennes, Indiana, on February 25, 1929, commemorating the one hundred fiftieth anniversary of the capture of Fort Sackville by George Rogers Clark. The only other items in this collection are two papers, hand-written in ink, entitled "The Crier III" and "The Crier, Epilogue." The pages appear to be a draft because there are crossed-out words. Mr. Stevens wrote: "Clark and his few chosen followers set out upon their great emprise [sic]. A march across the swamps and frozen lands, the rivers swollen and treacherous. Behind him, safety. Before him, the swift chance of war." There are no pages for I and II
