Excerpt from Biographical and Historical Sketches: A Narrative of Hamilton and Its Residents; From 1792 to 1896

Hamilton, lying in the midst of the far famed and his toric garden spot of America - the Miami Valley, surrounded by the best country that the world affords stands second to none. A city which claims for its children, many of the greatest men the American nation has produced. Men who sat in the highest tribunals, men, whose patriotism led them to shed their blood on many a field in the holy cause of liberty. Men whose war cry was for God and native land, and whose deeds of valor made tyrants tremble on their throne.

From such ancestral stock came the first residents of this city. Is it any wonder that with such example to emulate, that the town of Hamilton has produced such good citizens?

Looking backward, let us examine some of the footprints on the sands of time delve into our history and traditions that have gone to mingle with the years beyond the flood.

The route of General St. Clair in his disastrous campaign in 1791 passed through Butler County. In September of that year Fort Hamilton was built. It was a stockade, with bastions and platforms for two cannon. Barracks were con structed with a guard room also, and two store houses for provisions. It is a remarkable fact that the fort was completed in about fourteen days. The cross cut saw, the augur and the axe were pressed into service and Fort Hamilton was a reality, and St. Clair's orders had been obeyed.
