Constitution Corner

  • George Rogers Clark

    Shrieking war whoops, flashing tomahawks, and sweeping destruction brought the War for Independence home to every man, woman, and child living on the western frontier of America in 1776. They were not forced to defend themselves against smartly uniformed soldiers, but against savages who would murder the smallest child or most helpless woman without hesitation. Neither age nor gender mattered when the scalps were presented for payment at Fort Detroit. Henry Hamilton, the fort's commandant and dutiful English servant, paid handsome rewards for such trophies.
