1832 · The Black Hawk War

Age 9

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

It is commonly bestowed among evangelical Protestants, in honour of the ecclesiastical reformer and theologian Martin Luther ( 1483–1546 ). In recent times it has also been bestowed in honour of the assassinated civil rights leader Martin Luther King ( 1929–68 ). It was at its most popular in the United States from the 1880s up to 1910 but has since steadily declined.
