    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.

    \"During the end of April, David Reese and his company settled the land north of the Logan River. That area was the second permanent settlement in Cache Valley and the future location of Logan. The city's boundary was drawn by Logan's first bishop, Jesse W. Fox, a government engineer. The name \"\"Logan\"\" comes from a trapper that used to frequent the area before the pioneers came to the valley.\"
