Pierre Menard Ledger for sale
Ledger kept by Pierre Menard or his partner Toussaint Dubois, from September 6 to November 5, 1813. Would be great if this could be purchased by a historical society in the area to be kept for public use/display.
The flags shown, from the Fleu-de-Lis of France up to the Louisiana
state flag, were the flags flown over a vast area of land from the Gulf
of Mexico to Canada and from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains.
