Logan’s and Kellar’s Companies of the Illinois Regiment Visit Fort Boonesborough July 25-26

Although Fort Boonesborough was never considered a military fort, members of the militia under the command of George Rogers Clark frequented the fort on many occasions as they traveled throughout the hostile countryside. Present day members of two of these companies camped at Fort Boonesborough while on a recruiting mission. Boys and girls who were visiting the fort over the weekend gladly signed up (or made their mark) to become members and “train” with the soldiers.
