LIFE AND TIMES OF GEN. SAM. DALE, THE MISSISSIPPI PARTISAN
233pp. First edition. Original blindstamped cloth, a nice copy. Laid in is a superlative manuscript document signed in ink by Dale, dated Jan. 28, 1822, appropriating $740 from the Alabama assembly for Dale’s use. Dale’s signature is of considerable rarity. The book remains the definitive biography of the famous Indian fighter, the Daniel Boone of the Mississippi Territory, in particular Alabama, where he won his fame as a scout and military courier. Like Boone, Dale’s exploits are the stuff of legend and hyperbole, such as the tale of his fight with six Creek Indians on the Alabama River in which he is reputed to have stepped into their boat from his own, broken his waterlogged rifle over the head of one and dispatched the others with the stump of the gun. True or not, Dale was a feared Indian fighter as well as a delegate to the convention that divided the Mississippi Territory and established the Alabama Territory. He served in the Alabama General Assembly from 1819 to 1828. Bookseller Inventory # 0041
