TELLS OF BATTLE
Story of Struggle at Campbell's
Island in 1814 Related
to Press Club.
ENTERTAINED AT NEW RESORT
Some Details of Most Sanguinary
Fight on Upper River in
War of 1812.
Tri-City Press club members were
entertained last evening at the House
in the Woods, as the pavilion on
Campbell s island has been named, at
dinner. They enjoyed a ride to and
from the newly equipped resort on the
interurban cars of the Mississippi
Valley Traction company, which also
owns the island, and were given an
opport unity to see what has been done,
at the resort to improve upon the'
striking natural fitness of the island
as a place for a summer outing.
At 7 an appetizing dinner was
served by Manager L inn. After its dis
posal a brief address was made by
Secretary 15. F. Peek, of the Traction
company. Mr. Peek ended by intro
ducing W. A. Meese, who read an his
torical sketch that he had prepared
covering the tragic story that led to
the naming of Campbell's island.
.Mr. Meese a effort without question
presented more of the details of this
event than have ever been given prev
iously by any one person. He has
spent much time in his researches and
is not yet tinisried. Later, wnen lie is
satisfied that he has exhausted the
subject, he intends publishing th
story in full.
Mr. Meese in the beginning took hi
hearers back to the exploration and
early settlement of this portion of
what was then the far northwest by
the French. Later, after the British
hiid secured possession of Canada they
succeeded to the power and influence
over the Indians of the French in the
interior and utilized them against the
Americans in the war of 1812. Dur
ing this struggle the stratcgetic point
on tne upper river was Prairie du
Chlen, where the British held a fort.
Practically all the fighting on the up
per river was done over the possession
o: this tort and it was in this connec
tion that the battle at Campbell's isl
and took place, this being the most
sanguinary conflict in the far north
west during that war.
Whh Relief Expedition.
Nearly everybody in this part of the
state knows about the fight or massa
cre at Campbell a island in a general
way bur few have a correct Idea of
any of the details.
It took place July 19, 1S11. Prairie
du Chien had been captured bv the
nited btates troops under Gen. How
ard operating from St. Louis as a basf
and the expedition under the com
nana oi uen. uampoeii was sent up
the river for the relief of the garri
son. At the mouth of Rock river a
party of Sac and Fox Indians under
the leadership of Black Hawk met the
party and pretended to be friendly to
ward them. A conference was held
with the savages at Hock Island the
ISth and Black Hawk agreed to begin
hostilities against the British, a prom
ise that he had previously made and
failed to fulfill. During the night,
however, runners arrived from the
north telling the Indians that Prairie
du C hien had been again taken by the
British and Black Hawk immediately
decided to begin war upon the Amer
ican expedition that was then at Rock
Island. Concealing the news of the
fate of the fort from the Americans
he awaited till they had departed on
their way northward and then follow-
d, overtaking them in the early
morning of the 19th at Campbell s
Gen. Campbell had three boats and
something less than loo men. The
boats were then termed gunboats.
They were the ordinary keel boats
used on the river before the advent
f steam with a cabin and sail and
each was provided with one or more
small cannon. The main dependence
n traveling was places! upon oars and
pike poles with which the craft were
"poled" along in the shallower water
near snore ry men walking along a
gangway on each side.
Were Preparing ItreakfiMt.
The Americans in Campbell's boat
had been forced to land at the island
now railed Campbell's by a storm and
were engaged in preparing breakfast
when the Indians, who numbered
about 4tM, attacked them. The other
two boats were some distance up the
river at the time and although they
at once put back to the rescue, the
most of the damage had been done
before they were able to reach the
scene of the carnage. The Americans
were greatly handicapped through the
difficulty in handling their boats in the
strong wind and they were rapidly
picked off by the savages concealed
in the high grass and underbrush
along the shore. Lieut. Riggs. who
commanded one of the other boats,
came to the rescue of Gen. Campbell
and with much difficulty succeeded in
bringing his boat alongside and taking
the crew, including the dead and in
jured, from Campbell's boat to his
own. Then he pusned out into the
stream and the two surviving loats
traveled night and day until they
reached St. Louis, the men "being re
duced to living skeletons on the trip
through the hard work and privations
they had undergone.
There were 14 soldiers killed and 21
wounded, including Gen. Campbell, in
the fight at the island. Black Hawk

state that a much heavier loss was
inflicted. During the attack the In
dians Brad burning brands from their
bows to the boat and set it alire. The
upper portion was burned away
though the Indians when the Ameri
cans left put out the fire and took
away such of the stores as thoy could
use. Black Hawk says that he found
