1832 · Black Hawk War

Age 17

"The Black Hawk War was a brief conflict between the United States and Native Americans led by Black Hawk, a Sauk leader. The war erupted soon after Black Hawk and a group of other tribes, known as the ""British Band"", crossed the Mississippi River, into Illinois, from Iowa Indian Territory in April 1832. Black Hawk's motives were ambiguous, but records show that he was hoping to avoid bloodshed while resettling on tribal land that had been given to the United States in the 1804 Treaty of St. Louis."

Name Meaning

1 English: nickname for a man with some fancied resemblance to a he-goat (Old English bucc(a)) or a male deer (Old English bucc). Old English Bucc(a) is found as a personal name, as is Old Norse Bukkr. Names such as Walter le Buk (Somerset 1243 ) are clearly nicknames.2 English: topographic name for someone who lived near a prominent beech tree, such as Peter atte Buk (Suffolk 1327 ), from Middle English buk ‘beech’ (from Old English bōc).3 German: from a personal name, a short form of Burckhard ( see Burkhart ).
