Chronicling the Trail of Death: Part 28

Monday, 29 Oct. 1838

Diary of William Polke

“At eight o’clock we resumed our journey—the morning being delightful and fine for travelling. At 12 we reached Prairie Creek, 10 miles from Schuy Creek. Subsistence flour, corn-meal, beef and pork and game of every kind. Forage, corn, hay and fodder.”

“About five o’clock Capt. Hull arrived in camp with the Indians left at Logansport and Tippecanoe, numbering in all some 23. They are tolerably good health and spirits and will perhaps accomplish the remainder of the journey in the company of our party.”
