Presented by Kevin Kaegy. Isaac Hill was sent to the Territory by Thomas Jefferson to survey the land between Shoal Creek and the Kaskaskia River in 1808 so the government could eventually sell the land. When Hill finished the survey he sold the cabins he had built to David White. White and others quickly finished the fort as there were skirmishes with the Indians during that period. . Mr. Kaegy has served as a leader of the Bond County Historical and Genealogical Societies for over twenty years. He has also worked as an editor with Bill Wilson to co-author five books since 2002.
