Clarence Walworth Alvord

Illinois originally formed a part of the commonwealth of Virginia and the government established by Virginia exercised authority over the French villages on the banks of the Mississippi in southwestern Illinois following the occupation of Illinois by George Rogers Clark. Clark established "a court of civil judicature" at Cahokia elected by the people. "The title of the court…founded at Cahokia was the 'Court of the Committee of Cahokia'…The date of the earliest paper which has been preserved issuing from the court at Cahokia is October 29, 1778." This volume begins with an introduction detailing the history of the region, then presents the records of the Court of Cahokia in both English and French. Chapters include a Petition to Clark, Stray Leaves from the Court of the Committee of Cahokia, a Record of Court Established by George Rogers Clark, the Act of Virginia Assembly Creating County of Illinois, Transcripts from the Cahokia Record, Record of the Court of the District of Cahokia, Extract from the Registers of the Magistracy of Cahokia, Cahokia Documents-French and Cahokia Documents-English. A bibliography provides valuable resource information and a subject, place and fullname index provides easy access to information for the researcher.

 2.  CD: The First Explorations of the Trans-Allegheny Region by the Virginians, 1650-1674
Clarence Walworth Alvord and Lee Bidgood
(1912), 2005, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and MAC, 276 pp, Heritage Books
In this volume Mr. Alvord and Mr. Bidgood bring previously unwritten history to light and correct "a great injustice" done to the Virginians who discovered and explored the Trans-Allegheny region. Both England and France, almost at the same moment, set up their claims to the immense interior valley setting up a struggle for its mastery which lasted almost a century and ultimately resulted in the French and Indian War. Much has been written about the French explorers Frontenac, Joliet, Marquette and La Salle, but little has been written until now about the English explorers Lederer, Batts, Fallam, Needham and Arthur. This volume seeks to correct that omission and includes a bibliography so that other historians can confirm the English explorers' place in history. Several maps track the progress of the different expeditions and a subject, place and fullname index provides easy access to information.
