    THE WAR OF 1812, ACTIVITIES OF THAT TIME, A FORT BUILT IN GALLATIN.

    The second war with Britain, declared on June 18, 1812, intensified military activity in this
    area of Illinois Territory. Many expected trouble from the Indians, especially around the sal t
    works and in the outlying areas. Several militia companies were recruited and trained in S.E.
    Illinois. Thomas E. Craig, a Shawneetown businessman, captained one of 67 men. After Leonard
    White was promoted, Phillp Tramell replaced him as captain of a company. Other captains were
    James Trousdale and Willis Hargrave.
