Summary, etc.: "An encyclopedia of interesting and influential people, government officials and businesses from pre-history to 1896"--Cover.
There have been many people who influenced Indiana and our lives. This is the story of hundreds of them. From Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette, who was Indiana's first tourist and the Bissot family who stayed and built forts for the French. From Mad Anthony who saved Fort Wayne to Little Turtle who refused to fight and who's granddaughter lived to be 105 years. From Dennis Pennington who kept Indiana from becoming a slave state to William Holman who built the National Forest system. From our Civil War Governor, Oliver Morton, to the Reno Brothers who invented the train robbery.-- From back cover.
