George Rogers Clark captured Kaskaskia on the night of July 4-5, 1778, and then sent a small company under Captain Joseph Bowman northward to Cahokia. Bowman met no resistance from the French settlers along the way, and took possession of Cahokia on July 6. The people there supported the American cause and raised a militia company to join Clark on his march to Vincennes. Clark later, under the authority of Virginia, established an administrative court at Cahokia and Bowman was elected magistrate.
