Presented by Hal Johnston

Fort Harrison:

Vanguard on the Wabash

1811 - 1818

February 12, 2018

6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Vigo County Public Library, Terre Haute

Refreshments 6:00 p.m.

The story of Fort Harrison is a remarkable but little-known story of struggle and sacrifice.  It weaves together the story of the original Native People

 who lived in the Wabash Valley with the men and women who were the first American settlers and laid the foundation for Vigo County and the City of Terre Haute.

From 1811 to 1818, the United States Army built and maintained Fort Harrison as a vital link in the defenses of the Midwestern frontier.

Hal Johnston was born and raised in Terre Haute, Indiana.  He earned a JD from the Indiana University School of law, and has been a licensed attorney since 1983. Hal has spent most of his career as a prosecuting attorney.  He is a 30 year veteran of the armed forces and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel.  After the terrorist attacks of 9/11 he served three combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan
