    Age 21

    "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

    English: from a vernacular short form of the Latin personal name Paschalis (see Paschal ).

    English: nickname for a mild-mannered and peaceable person, from Middle English pais, pace, pes(e), pece ‘peace, concord, amity’ (a borrowing of Old French pais, from Latin pax), or perhaps from the derived adjective pes ‘quiet, silent, peaceful’.

    Italian: from the medieval personal name Pace, from the vocabulary word pace ‘peace’ (see 2 above), used for both males and females. In some instances it may represent a short form of the medieval personal name Bonapace, an omen or well-wishing name based on the same word.
