    1832 · The Black Hawk War
    Age 22
    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

    Jewish, Welsh, African American, and African (mainly Nigeria): from the Biblical personal name borne by the Israelite leader who led the Israelites out of Egypt, as related in the Book of Exodus. The Hebrew form of the name is Moshe . It is probably of Egyptian origin, from a short form of an ancient Egyptian personal name such as Rameses or Tutmosis, meaning ‘conceived (by a god)’. However, very early in its history the name acquired a folk etymology, being taken as a derivative of the Hebrew root verb mshh ‘extract or draw (something), e.g. from water’ and was associated with a story of the infant Moses being discovered among the bullrushes by Pharaoh's daughter (Exodus 2: 1-10). As a Welsh surname, it was adopted among Dissenter families in the 18th and 19th centuries. In North America, this surname has absorbed cognates from other languages, for example Italian Moise , Hungarian Mózes (see Mozes ), Assyrian/Chaldean Moshe , Arabic Musa .English: variant of Moss , with post-medieval excrescent -s.English: variant of Moyses, a Cornish personal name derived from Middle English Moises, a vernacular form of Moses (see 1 above).
