1820 · Making Land more affordable

"The United States law requiring full payment at the time of purchase and registration of any land. to help encourage sales and make land more affordable, Congress reduced the minimum price of dollar per acre and the minimum size that could be purchased. Most of this land for sale was located on the frontier which was then ""The West"". This Act was good for many Americans, but it was also over used by wealthy investors."

1832 · The Black Hawk War

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.
