The tour will begin at Adams Mill. This year, the tour will feature Burlington, Young America and gravesites of Chief Peter Cornstalk and David Stitt.
Chief Peter Cornstalk was the leader of small group of Miami. Politically, he was able to separate his group from the Indians slated for removal from Indiana. He was living in the Burlington area on a Miami reserve when he died in 1838. He is buried on private land in a pioneer cemetery on the banks of Peter’s Run, a feeder stream to the Wildcat Creek. This tour is a prime opportunity to see this cemetery.
