Jacket: "A tragic, bloody confrontation, the war was fought in 1832 in present-day northwest Illinois and southwestern Wisconsin. Now, 150 years later, this area is visibly rich with the history of the Black Hawk War. This book offers a guided tour of that history. It tells the story of the Indian warrior, Black Hawk, and his troubled people. It describes the incidents which led to the fighting. It lays out a tour of the battlefields in the hope that those who love Wisconsin's and Illinois' past will visit the sites, where one can almost hear the thunder of musketry and the snorting of horses as the United States Army crushed the Indian leader and his band."
