Fact or Fiction #4- Black Hawk
A Sauk war chief, I had successfully led men into battle from the time I was 18 until I was about 65. After my last war, which was named after me, I was captured and taken on a tour of the great cities of the east coast. All my life I was opposed to more settlers moving into the midwest and even went so far as to fight alongside the British against the early settlers in the War of 1812, after disputing Quashquame's 1804 treaty with the Indiana Territory. I am the first Native American to have a published autobiography which I dictated in 1833, and after I died in 1838 my bones were stolen and put on display. My sons, with the help of the governor of the Iowa Territory, regained my bones and they were put into the care of the Burlington Geological and Historical Society.
So... Fact, Fiction, or Both?
