Preface : The avowed object in publishing this work is to furnish a concise history of the operations and success of the honest and industrious citizens of Northern Indiana, who banded themselves together in companies called Regulators--a right guaranteed to them by an act of Legislature of our State. In doing, so we set forth all the important confessions made by the different individuals arrested, and aimed to give a full detail of all the principal items of importance that occurred during the earnest and arduous labors of the better portions of our citizens in redessing the grievances they had so long borne, and in rescuing our country from hands of those vampires who were blighting and mildewing the best interests of this portion of our State. Hence we earnestly hope, in presenting this work to the public, it may fully meet their expectations, and find a hearty welcome in the mind of every lover of loyalty in our country.
The History of the Regulators is an account of the stand taken be the citizens of Northern Indiana, specificly Noble and Lagrange Counties. It chonicles the goings on such as conterfieting, prositution, horse thieving, gambling as well as robbing and murdering. Morality was threatened at evey turn. These chronicles also include confessions from gang leaders and other criminals. Arrests, trials, sentencing and executions are recorded as well.
