I painted this standing at Hull's Trace North Huron River Corduroy Segment. This is the only known section of the corduroy road that General William Hull and his troops constructed during the War of 1812. A corduroy road is made out of felled tree trunks, laid down side-by-side perpedicular to the route. They laid the track from Urbana, Ohio to Fort Detroit as a new route for transporting supplies that circumvented Lake Erie, which was controlled by the British at the time. Today, the remains of the corduroy road lay under West Jefferson in Brownstown Charter Township and it is managed by the National Park Service.
