Abstract:

The author, Mann Butler, was one of Kentucky's most prominent early educators. He is best remembered as being the first president of what would become the University of Louisville and he headed the first public school in Kentucky. The author intended to chronicle the history of the area from the treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle in 1748, to the Peace of Ghent, as ratified by the U.S. in 1815, a plan unfortunately thwarted by his untimely death in 1855. Therefore, Valley of the Ohio was an unfinished work in progress. The present volume was brought up only to the year 1791, as a portion of his incomplete writings was destroyed during the Civil War, and chronicles the early years of the exploration and westward expansion into what is now the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
