As far as my research shows, there has never been a duel fought in Vandalia. There have been a couple of hangings, whippings meted out by the local sheriff, according to law, a few murders and a tarring and feathering or two, but no duels.
Duels were an accepted way for gentlemen of honor to settle “difficulties” of a personal character in the early days of Illinois.
