Excerpt from Scenes and Settlers of Alabama After many months, when close attention and tender nursing had restored the victims to health, they went their several ways provided. With money, clothes, good wishes and friendships added to gratitude to endure the balance of their days.
The Marengo-county Colony, composed of French refugees from the wars of the Empire, mingled with American settlers of a higher class from the older States, formed a social circle in that primitive wilderness, unexcelled by any society of the country. The history of the Marengo Colony is a romance of more pages than the purposes of this pamphlet will permit to describe.
