    1832 · The Black Hawk War
    Age 18
    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

    German and French: from the personal name Christian, from Latin Christianus ‘follower of Christ’ (see Christ 1), literally ‘the Christian’. The usual French form is, however, Chrétien (see Chretien ). For the cognate English name see 3 below.Manx: from Mac Kristinn ‘son of Kristinn’, a borrowing of the Old Norse form of Latin Christianus ‘the Christian’. Christian is a learned, Anglicized form.English (of Norman origin): from the interchangeable Middle English personal names Cristian and Cristin, used for both men and women. Cristian is from Latin Christianus (see 1 above) and its female equivalent Christiana. Cristin is from Latin Christinus and Christina, male and female diminutives of Christus ‘Christ’. They were introduced to England and Scotland by the Normans in their Old French forms, male Crestien (or the learned form Cristian) and Cristin, female Cristiane and Cristine. Cristin(e) was naturally associated with the Middle English word cristen, cristin, or criston ‘Christian’ (Old English crīsten), reinforcing the tendency to use Cristin and Cristian as alternative name forms. The male name was never common in medieval England, but the female name became increasingly popular in the 14th and 15th centuries.
