Sinopsis:

Excerpt from Boonesborough: Its Founding, Pioneer Struggles, Indian Experiences, Transylvania Days, and Revolutionary Annals

The sites of some of the greatest cities Of the world were occupied by accident and yet succeeded, while intel ligent design selected others that utterly failed. It is easy enough to Choose a site and lay Off a town, but it requires inhabitants and manufactures and trade and per severance to make it a success. When General George Rogers Clark, in 1776, led the Opposition against the Transylvania Colony, and Virginia asserted her Old law forbidding private Citizens to purchase lands from the Indians, Transylvania was doomed, and with it Boones borough. It was then only a question Of time when the town and the fort would transfer their prestige to Har rodsburg and become things Of the past. Boone could roam through the untrodden forests in search of game, and could fight the Indian behind the trees Of his native woods or on the Open plain, but he lacked the municipal tact and persistence which builds up towns and turns them into Cities, and most Of his companions were like unto him.
