The History of Early Terre Haute free pdf Excerpt from The History of Early Terre Haute The original purpose of this little book was to tell the story of our village from its founding to the time of its becoming a city. This seemed natural and satisfactory. The dates fixed upon therefore, were 1816-1840. It was thought that this short period, though big with events, might be comprised in twenty-five or thirty chapters, which even a busy man might find time to read. But before the pencil had touched the notebook, it became evident that the plan would not work. The very name of the town, carries the story back an hundred years previous to 1816. Our dear old river, that made the site of the village possible, had a story, which must be told, which goes back of the French fur trader, and his predecessors the American Indians, to prehistoric times, evidences of which are found upon its banks, in the shape of fortifications and mounds. Besides there could have been no village without our prairie, and its story too must be told, though it carry us back to nobody knows when or where. If the seemingly natural limit of 1816 fared so badly- that of 1840. if possible, fared worse. The events of the intervening years were so eventful that they burst through all artificial barriers. You might stop the flow of the Wabash with drift wood and cornstalks, but not the swift current of village into city life. Human lives may end, but not the forces they set in motion. Deeds reproduce themselves. As a notable example. Mr. Chauncey Rose, the patron of our city is more alive in his influence to-dav than in the days of his natural life.
