    Age 1
    Historical Boundaries: 1827: Hancock, Illinois, United States
    1832 · Black Hawk War
    Age 6
    "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."
    1841 · The Nauvoo Legion
    Age 15
    In 1841, the Nauvoo Legion was organized. It was a group of men formed to protect the people of Nauvoo but also fought in different wars. Joseph Smith was the Lieutenant General of this group. Other leaders included Brigham Young, John C. Bennett, and others. They were part of the Illinois Mormon War (1844-1846), Mexican-American War (March of California, Capture of Tucson), Indian Wars (Battle Creek Massacre, Battle of Fort Utah, Walker War, Ute Black Hawk War, Mountain Meadows Massacre), American Civil War, and Morrisite War. The Legion was disbanded in 1887.

    Name Meaning

    English (Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire): occupational name either for a hunter or a servant of a hunter, from a compound of Middle English hunte ‘the act of hunting’ (or Old English hunta ‘huntsman’) + man. In some cases the name may also arise from a late, unrecorded Old English personal name Huntmann, a compound of hunta + -mann.
