The Journal of Hugh Campbell (paperback)


This paperback account of Hugh Campbell’s journal recounts the trials and tribulations the young man faced as he made his way to the United States in 1818. Hugh Campbell has been consigned to relative obscurity in local history books, usually overshadowed by the wild adventures and wealth of his younger brother. Though sharing Robert’s business acumen, integrity and work ethic, Hugh often is cast as the boring elder brother. However unfortunate this characterization, a closer look reveals a thoughtful and complex man who was the true patriarch of a sprawling family separated by the Atlantic.
