Description
Full Text

" The first craft to arrive at Chicago was the schooner GENERAL TRACY, a vessel of ninety tons burden, built at Detroit somewhere about the year 1800. She sailed from Detroit for Chicago in July, 1803, having on board a company of soldiers under command of Colonel Swearinger. On the passage she called at St. Joseph, and other points. Chicago at this period had only one white man's dwelling, that of an Indian trader. The TRACY in 1809 was wrecked on Fort Erie reef, opposite Buffalo, at which time she was owned by Porter, Barton & Co., of Black Rock, N.Y."
