On Sept. 3, 1812, a Native American war party killed more than 20 settlers living in a wooded outpost near present-day Scottsburg. Motivated by bounties offered by the British, the perpetrators scalped women and children, torched their log cabins and left the village in ashes.
Statehood Day is a day we relish with genuine Hoosier pride. On Dec. 11, 1816, Indiana, once part of the vast Northwest Territory, was officially recognized as a burgeoning new state comprised of great resources and the promise of a better future.
History remembers William Henry Harrison as the first president to die in office. Hoosiers should remember him as the man who shaped the Indiana Territory.
Indiana's political values, moral compass and physical boundaries were shaped by the Northwest Ordinance of 1787.
If not for George Rogers Clark, we Hoosiers might snack on scones with jam and clotted cream and speak with cockney accents.
