Announcement Date: January 12, 2016

Clark and militia return to Vincennes via “Clark’s Trace”.  Along the way a horse is stolen, Capt Gaines writings mention a “meeting at a place called French Lick” to settle the dispute over Col James Barrett’s stolen horse.  What’s important here is that within Clark’s militia the stopping place was named “French Lick”.  All other accounts through the area call it something different.  It takes 7 days via Clark’s Trace, cutting off two days.
