The Journal Of Amos Hannah
The personal journal of Amos Hannah (written from 1838 to 1850) outlines his daily life from Brookville, Indiana to his arrival at the gold fields of California. Amos Hannah was a cooper (i.e. barrel maker), who raised a family, traveled extensively, and chronicled
the events and concerns of his day. All editions include a table of contents; introduction; the complete 1838-1850 journal (as written); letters from the era, including one from Panama; examples of Justice of the Peace documents; explanations of archaic terminology; over 20 black/white photographs and illustrations; European genealogy in timeline overview; early American genealogy
in detailed timeline; Bibliography; Appendices (some illustrated); and a large Index searchable by both topic and name. [see the author's website for a long list of reviews | Published by Dragonfly Publishing, Inc. www.dragonflypubs.com]
