The old soldier and old settler and veteran mentioned 111 the body of the work was Elisha Blackman, Jr., of Hanover. Quotations have not been changed, even when the punctuations seemed to be all wrong. The orthography has been followed unless it was a mani fest case of misprint. The names of persons and places in the old histories, and written documents, seem to have been Spelled according to the writer's notion of it at the moment, as they are not always spelled in the same way by the same writer. When any such matter has been intro duced here the orthography has not been intentionally changed. Various errors have been made in printing which the proof-reader (myself), from inexperience probably, failed to discover until too late for correction. I have therefore introduced here a page of errata, showing the true reading.
