Hugh Young


In a communication from General Jackson addressed to the Hon. John C. Calhoun, Secretary of War, from Fort Gadsden, May 5, 1818, there occurs the following statement: “For a detailed account of my movements from that period to this day, you are respectfully referred to the report prepared by my adjutant general, accompanied with Captain Hugh Young’s topographical sketch of the route and distance performed”. This evidently refers to the memoir and itineraries here presented.
