Simon Kenton in 1864 Harper's Magazine

Incorporating the International Magazine of Literature, Art, and Science, Harper's was a journal devoted to fiction, essays, cultural and political commentary. In its long history, the publication has changed names several times. In 1913, it was called Harper's Monthly Magazine, and in 1976 the name was shortened to simply Harper's Magazine. This publication appeared monthly, and should not confused with Harper's Weekly, another popular journal of the time.

In February 1864, they published a comprehensive article on local frontier legend Simon Kenton and his life. The full text of that article is available at the link below:
