Black Hawk and the War of 1832

The removal of Black Hawk and his band of Sauk and Fox Indians essentially opened much of what was then the Northwest Territory of the United States - Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and part of Minnesota - to white settlement. Black Hawk and the War of 1832 reveals in searing detail how the Black Hawk War culminated in a final battle at Bad Axe River in Wisconsin that was so brutal that many local tribes fled to the West.
