Excerpt from The Battle of the Thames: In Which Kentuckians Defeated the British, French, and Indians, October 5, 1813; With a List of the Officers and Privates Who Won the Victory
The conditions in the North, and especially in the Northwest, were no less discouraging. The Americans had held Fort Harrison, Fort Stephenson, and Fort Meigs, but the surrender of Detroit and Mackinac, and the massacres at Fort Dearborn, Fort Meigs, and the river Raisin had more than eclipsed the glory Of all other quarters. Proctor, reeking with the blood his treachery and brutality had drawn from fallen foes, stood forth like a demon incarnate to desolate the land with all the horrors Of a savage and none Of the ameliorations of a civilized war.
