Solemn awe and deep seriousness are appropriate for coming into the place set apart for the worship of God, for wherever.

On Decem in obedience to instructions from Gen. Thomas Flournoy, Gen. Claiborne advanced his forces from Fort Claiborne toward the Holy Ground. After several days’ march, a brief halt was made in the present Butler County, where a depot was established, known as Fort Deposit, where he left his wagons, cannon, baggage, and the sick.
