    1832 · The Black Hawk War
    Age 1
    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.
    Age 12

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from one of a number of places: two in Wiltshire, Lydiard Millicent and Lydiard Tregose; and two in Somerset, Bishop's Lydeard and Lydeard Saint Lawrence. The placenames derive from a British name composed of garth ‘hill or ridge’, and an uncertain first element, possibly lēd ‘gray’.
