Notes.

Note from page 371: 1. Martin S. and Alexander Trent apparently succeeded to the Berry-Lincoln store and its goods, rather than selling out to Lincoln as described here. See McKenzie.

Note from page 371: 2. Gen. Henry Atkinson.

Note from page 371: 3. Maj. Isaiah Stillman.

Note from page 372: 4. Rachel and Sylvia Hall, two survivors of the massacre of the William Hall family, were kidnapped by the Indians and later released near Galena.

Note from page 372: 5. Neither Clary nor Lincoln saw the actual victims of this attack, but they apparently did see the scalps that Clary describes at an abandoned Pottawatomie village. See Whitney.

Note from page 372: 6. Lt. Gov. Zadoc Casey.

Note from page 372: 7. Maj. John Dement, in charge of a spy battalion. It appears doubtful that AL served with him.

Note from page 373: 9. Clary apparently means the first man that ever threw Lincoln.
