    1832 · Black Hawk War

    Age 20

    "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

    German: from a derivative of Middle High German bloch ‘block of wood, stocks’, hence presumably a metonymic occupational name for a jailer. See also Block .
