The Black Hawk War was apart of the American Indian Wars. This war was a couple of skrimmishes between USA-icon USAball and 3-icon Saukball.



The Treaty of 1812 was put into place to make 3-icon Saukball stay on the western side of the Mississippi River.

USA-icon USAball started to built Fort Madison on the Sauk side of the river. For this reason, 3-icon Saukball thought that The Treaty of 1812 was no longer in effect. The 3-icon Saukballs started to crossed the river after a hunting trip, and forced USA-icon USAball off the river.

Crossing the River

USA-icon USAball sent troops to force 3-icon Saukball to the western side of the Mississippi River.

USA-icon USAball formed the Corn Treaty, which states that 3-icon Saukball can't cross the river and USA-icon USAball can build forts and roads on the western side of the Mississippi River. These forts and roads blocked 3-icon Saukball from making food.

The Fight Begins

3-icon Saukball started to cross the river with the British Band, making the start of the war on April 6. USA-icon USAball saw this and told them to turn back. After refusing, USA-icon USAball started to send his troops to stop 3-icon Saukball.

3-icon Saukball wanted to start a meeting to show their reason for crossing the river. Instead, USA-icon USAball shot 3-icon Saukball. Finally, Black Hawk-icon Black Hawk sent his troops into battle.

3-icon Saukball ambushed USA-icon USAball, forcing them to retreat. 3-icon Saukball and USA-icon USAball had a lot of scrimmages and minor battles against each other.

Forced to Cross

After many days of low food, 3-icon Saukball was forced to go back to the western side of the Mississippi River once again. 3-icon Saukball was being shot at while he was crossing the river, and surrender on the western side.

The Battles

The Battle of Stillman's Run.

The commander, Black Hawk-icon Saukball led his men onto Stillman's Run (also called Sycamore Creek or Old Man's Creek) on May 14, 1832, somehow they won with 3-icon 40 v. 275 Murica-icon by scaring the scouts back to their camp, 12 died (RIP John Giles Adams), while 3-5 men of the British Band died.

Buffalo Grove Ambush

Next, the British Band headed to Michigan Territoryball, to battle some more. Meanwhile, on the way, the Kickapoo ambushed some Murica-icon American men at Buffalo Grove, which is now in Polo, Illinoisball, yep the Americans ran away just to 1 men dying.

Massacres and Incidents

With the British Band headed to the north, an unknown man named Mike Girty and his men massacred some Illinoisball settlers, at Indian Creek nearby Earlville. 3 days later, the Americans return to Northern Illinoisball and they meet Ho-Chunkball, but they battled , and 4 people died. (RIP Felix St. Vrain ). There are more, on June 6, an American got killed by a Ho-Chunkball, which was at Fort Blue Mounds. On June 14, the Kickapooball with the British Band, where they met 6 Murica-icon Americans at a farm, shooting happens, and 4 died. Meanwhile on June 20th, Murica-icon USAball went out the fort, and got attacked by 3-icon 3balls, 2 people died. Now the British Band were advancing to Horseshoe Bend, and the Americans were a bit prepared at that time.

Horseshoe Bend

Now the Americans were looking for supplies, that's when they found out about the ambush and rushed to save them. In June 16, 1832 30 men, they made their army in a strong military position. The Kickapoo commander with 10 men, attacked and after a long time, all 11 were dead. On the American's side: 3 killed, 1 wounded. This turned the tide of the war.

Now, here's the list of summary of what happened after Horseshoe Bend. First Battle of Kellogg's Grove : Murica-icon USAball killed 4 natives, 3-icon 3balls got payback, 2 dead. Second Battle of Kellogg's Grove:  3-icon 3balls caught by Murica-icon USAball, retreat into woods, firing, and 2 militia dead, 9 indians dead, these battles resulted in a dispute.

On June 17/June 18, 30 3-icon 3balls attacked with of course, Mike Girty, these guys fired through the door, 1 killed, Murica-icon Americans retreated, no military result.

Apple River Fort

On June 24, 1832, the 3-icon Saukball or 3-icon Foxball along with 3-icon Black Hawk met up with Murica-icon Apple River Fort, but Murica-icon couriers had already went to 70 local settlers to tell them that the 3-icon British Band approaching them. The fort had 28-30 men, along with the British Band, 150-200 men. Murica-icon Captain Clack Stone's army fought off the 150 war party men, when the sun set, they had no choice but to retreat, it was a Murica-icon USAball victory.

Sinsinawa Mound Raid

Meanwhile, the 3-icon 3balls were blasted by Murica-icon USAball, forcing for the 3-icon 3balls to head north to Wisconsin. In a cornfield 3-icon British Bandball attacked the 3 Murica-icon USAballs, 2 were killed, making that a 3-icon 3ball victory, although Murica-icon USAball got his army ready, as the 3-icon 3balls, move on to Wisconsin.

The Battle of Wisconsin Heights and Bad Axe

After the Battle of Horseshoe Bend, the Murica-icon USAballs looked for Black Hawk's trail. They used dead bodies and rumors to find Black Hawk. At that time, Black Hawk's army was in poor health and his army was slowly starving to death. Black Hawk was trying to get across the river, but failed after the Americans chased them away, so then, they had to fight. The Murica-icon USAballs went to higher ground, and assualted the British Band. Black Hawk's army was being overwhelmed with gunfire. When General Henry arrived, he lead a bayonet charge, ending the battle.  There was 600-750 on the Americans side, while 50-80 soldiers on the British Band. After the battle 1 killed, 8 was wounded on the Americans, while 40-70 men were killed on the British Band, which was composed on Sauks and Fox Native Americans. Murica-icon USAball regrouped at Blue Mound Fort, and picked up the British Band's trail again at Spring Greenball, in present Wisconsin-icon Wisconsinball. The British Bandballs was trying to get across the Bad Axe River, but guess what. The Americans had found the British Band, it was over. On the first day on the Battle of Bad Axe, the steamboat Warrior stopped the 3-icon 3balls from escaping. Black Hawk ordered for the men to retreat to the North, but many didn't listen. 23 3-icon 3balls were killed so far. 1 killed on the Warrior. On the second day of the battle, Sauk scouts distracted the Murica-icon USAballs to fight with them, and they were successful, but only by a few miles. The Murica-icon USAballs then found the trail leading to the city. The Sauk and Fox people retreated to the river. By 10 AM, the Murica-icon USAballs showed up. A desperate bayonet-musket battle soon followed. Men fought, while women and children fled through the river, some drowned on the way. The battle continued for 30 minutes, but then Murica-icon USAballs cut off their escape route. Some warriors got onto an island, but was assualted by the ship Warrior. The massacre followed, everyone who tried to flee through the river were shot, among them was women and children. More than 150 people were killed in the bloodbath. The Murica-icon USAballs cut off the {{I}3}} 3balls flesh from their backs, using them as razor strops. The Murica-icon USAballs also captured 75 3-icon 3balls, out of the 400-500 3-icon 3balls army, most were killed at the river, others that escaped got temporary relief, but then 3-icon Siouxballs in support of the Murica-icon USAball's army, got the 3-icon 3balls captured. The 3-icon Siouxballs brought 68 scalps and 22 prisoners to the Murica-icon USAballs. The Americans only got 5 killed, 19 wounded.

Surrender and Peace Treaty

There was small resistance, the Murica-icon USAballs found 3-icon 3balls at their villages, as some 3-icon 3balls retreated to their houses after Bad Axe, however it was diffcult, some starved, some died. Some of the Natives returned safe. The prisoners of Bad Axe were taken to Fort Armstrong. Black Hawk had moved northeast to the headwaters of La Crosse River, they camped there. The 3-icon 3balls didn't want to surrender, but Black Hawk had to. They went to La Crosseball and prepared to surrender. On August 27, 1832, Black Hawk's army surrendered at Prairie du Chien to an American officer. The 3-icon 3balls were forced to sell their land East of the Mississippi River and retreat west. Many 3-icon 3balls were jailed. The Ho-Chunks ceded their land South of the Wisconsin River in exchange for a 40 mile strip of land in Iowa and yearly expenses of $10,000 for 27 years. That 40 mile strip was also known as Neutral Ground, so 3-icon 3balls can settle there. For the Sauks and Meskwakis, they were forced to sell 6 million acres, along with payments of 20,000 dollars. They sold reservations, both tribes were given reservations. The last lands in Iowa-icon Iowaball were forced to sell in 1842. The Americans didn't seize tribal land as war reparations, the people who did the Indian Creek Massacre were tried in court, they were acquitted. In 1833, the Potawatomi land was sold in Chicagoball. The end.
