George Rogers Clark, Military Leader in the Pioneer West & Locust Grove, the Croghan Homestead Honoring Him
Louisville, Kentucky: Historic Locust Grove, Inc.: 2006: 097768220X / 9780977682201: First Edition: Hard Cover: Fine: Near Fine: SIGNED: Top edge of the dust jacket's rear panel is bumped and slightly worn, otherwise fine. 223 pages with Endnotes and Index. Illustrated, including endpaper maps. SIGNED by both authors. This book recounts the restoration of the historic Locust Grove home in Louisville, Kentucky, once the home of Revolutionary War hero, George Rogers Clark's sister's family. Clark, who founded Louisville, died there in 1818. Presidents and other notable American figures visited there and the 55-acre site (once a 639-acre estate) is now designated a National Historic Landmark. From the Locust Grove web site: "This 1790 Georgian mansion tells the story of its builders, William and Lucy Clark Croghan, and the story of American beginnings. William and Lucy Clark Croghan, along with Lucy's brother, General George Rogers Clark, welcomed a generation of American luminaries to their home to rest, dialogue, campaign, and duel. Presidents James Monroe and Andrew Jackson, John James Audubon, Cassius Marcellus Clay, and Lewis and Clark-among others-all passed through Locust Grove. Now a National Historic Landmark, Locust Grove is a unique example of early Kentucky architecture, craftsmanship, and history.": 08427:
