Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: In the year 1771, a white boy was captured by Shawnee Indians in what is now part of West Virginia, but was then the edge of our American frontier. He was not killed. Instead he was adopted into the tribe and given the name Blue Jacket, from the blue shirt he had been wearing at the time of his capture. This boy later so excelled as a fighter and leader of men that he was made war chief of the Shawnee Nation. And the name Blue Jacket became famous throughout the Northwest Territory.
Subject: Blue Jacket, b. ca. 1752.
