It narrates the settlement and development of the Detroit River, or Western District, until after the close of the War of American Invasion, 1812-1815, the locality where, in 1701, was established the first French colony of the west, the story of which, and the subsequent developments therefrom, constitute the first chapter in the history of the Province.
