1832 · The Black Hawk War

Convinced that a group of Native American tribes were hostile, The United States formed a frontier militia to stop them in their tracks. Even though Black Hawk was hoping to avoid bloodshed while trying to resettle on tribal land, U.S. officials opened fire on the Native Americans. Black Hawk then responded to this confrontation by successfully attacking the militia at the Battle of Stillman's Run and then left northward. After a few months the militia caught up with Black Hawk and his men and defeated them at the Battle of Wisconsin Heights. While being weakened by hunger, injuries and desertion, Black Hawk and the rest of the many native survivors retreated towards the Mississippi. Unfortunately, Black Hawk and other leaders were later captured when they surrendered to the US forces and were then imprisoned for a year.

Name Meaning

English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Dutch: from the Latin personal name Lucas (Greek Loukas) ‘man from Lucania’. Lucania is a region of southern Italy thought to have been named in ancient times with a word meaning ‘bright’ or ‘shining’ (compare Lucio ). The Christian name owed its enormous popularity throughout Europe in the Middle Ages to Saint Luke the Evangelist, hence the development of this surname and many vernacular derivatives in most of the languages of Europe. In North America, this surname has absorbed cognates from other languages, e.g. Greek Loukas , Hungarian Lukács (see Lukacs ), German, Dutch, etc. Lukas , Polish Łukasz, Czech and Slovak Lukáš, Czech Lukeš, Slovenian and Croatian Lukež (see Lukes ). Compare Luke .

Scottish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Lùcais (see McLucas ).

History: Jacques Lucas dit Lépine from Port-en-Bessin-Huppain in Calvados, France, married Françoise Capel in Trois-Rivières, QC, in 1653.
