1832 · The Black Hawk War

Age 0

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.
1834 · Zion's Camp

Age 2

Joseph Smith, Jr. and a group of 200 volunteers departed Kirkland, Ohio, to aid scattered Latter-day Saints. The group known as Zion's Camp arrived to the Fishing River on June 19. A mob had gathered to attack and disjoin the group. A storm swept through the area and the river rose over 30 feet, which caused the mob to scatter.
