GENERAL BLACK HAWK.
The Famous Indian of Onr Early
The West Chlrrtaim and How He

ploltn . and Ktx.tr Experience la
Uoder the head of "Famous Indians,"
the St. Louis Globe -Democrat has an ex
tended reference to each of a number of
I idian chieftains in the early history of
the west, and Black Hawk, the once
g-eat general, among the red men of
this community, after which Black Hawk's
tower and township take their names, ap
pears among the rest, as follows:
The British gave Black Hawk his title
of "General." When Catlin painted the
.ld chief he was a prisoner at Jefferson
Barracks, below St. Louis, and his race
i almost run. When be sat for bis
plctore be wore a pi sin suit of buckskin,
lie bad strings of wampum in bis ears and
around bis neck. His medicine bag,
whicb be held upon bis arm. was the skiu
oi a macK nawK, wun ine tail so ar
ranged as to make a fan, whicb he waved
Black Hawk was not born a chief. He
made bis way to generalship by bard
licks. When be was 15 be wouDded an
( iiemy; that roadebim a brave. Then be
killed a brave and was qualified to join in
a war dance, Before be was 20 bis ex
ploits bad won him a place in the racks
of the famous warriors of the Sacs. He
became known as "General" Biack Hawk
when be joined the British in the war of
1812 and fought along the American
frontier. His followers were known as
'"British band." When peace was de-
clared. Black Hawk only yielded reluc
tant'y. He objected particularly to the
building of the fort at Rock Island, 111.
Along in 1S24 murders were frequent on
the Illinois frontier, and Black Hawk
was suspected. Three years afterward
he was made a prisoner for an attack on
some boats, but was released. Soon al
terwards the Sacs and Foxes, through
their chief Keokuk, released all of their
lands in Illinois. But Black Haw k and
his people refused to abide by the treaty.
They crossed the Mississippi for a short
time, but went back to tbeir old homes at
the mouth of Rock river, and declared
that they were going to stay there. This
was the occasion of the Black Hawk war.
The regulars and the militia assembled at
John Dixon's ferry, now the city of Dix
on. Some men were there who after
wards became fitmotis in the history of
the country. Gen. Atkinson commanded
the troops Zicharv Taylor, who be
came president, was a lieutenant colonel
of regulars. RobL Ander-n, who com
manded Fort Sumpter when fired upon,
was & lieutenant of regulars. Jefferson
Davis was a lieutenant of regulars, and
Abraham Lincoln was a private in the II
Imois mounted raogers. All of them
served together in the Mark Hawk cam
paign. The war was a short one. and
ended in the capture of Black Hawk.
Wnen taken into the presence of Gen.
Street, Black Hak stid:
''Black Hawk is an Indiec; be has done
nothing of which an Indian need be
ashamed; he has fought ths battles of bis
country agaiust the white man. who came
year after year to cheat his people and
take away bis lands. You know the
cause of our making war; it is known to
all white men; they ought to be ashamed
of it. The white men despise the Indians
and drive tbem from their homes; but the
Indians are not deceitful; Indians do not
steal. Black nawk is satisfied; he will
go the world of spirits contented; be has
done his duty; his father will meet him
and reward him; the white men do not
scalp the beads, but they do worse they
poison the heart. It is not pure with
The old general was kept a prisoner at
Jefferson barracks awhile, and then he
was taken to Washington. When he
was presented to President Jackson he
looked at old hickory seirchingly, and
"I am a man and you are another."
When it was thought that Biack Hawk
had been sufficiently impressed with the
strength of the while people so that he
would see the uelessness of war, he was
set at liberty.
The burial of Black Hawk was in ac
cordance with his instructions. His body
rested on plank at such an angle that
white bis feet bad sixteen inches of soil
on them his bead was fully a foot above
ground. His burial clothes were the full
dress uniform of a colonel, with hat and
sword, given him by President Jackson.
Blackets were wrapped around him. A
feather pillow was placed under his head.
There was no coflin, but over the half
buried body was taised a roof made by
laying planks against a ridyc-pole, which
was supported upon crotched sticks. The
sepulcher was further protected by a
picket fence. Beside the body were
placed two canes, one of them the gift of
Henry Clay. A flag pole thirty or forty
feet high was planted, and from the top
of it an American flag floated until the
elements wore it out. The medals, of
which Blackhawk had received, one from
President Jackson, another from Presi
dent Adams, and a third from the city of
Boston, were buried with bim.
No general was ever buried with more
unique honors of war. But in spite of
the picket fence twelve feet high, the
vault was disturbed. About a year after
the queer burial Clack Hawk ahead disau
peared. The skeleton followed, but was
recovered. Black Hawk's bones found a
resting place in the office of the governor
of the Territory of Iowa for some vears.
but were finally burned up in the collec
tion of a local historical society. At
least that is the conclusion of Indian His
torian Donaldson, of the Smithsonian In
Black Hawk is described by the artist as
having bad a remarkably well ttbaped bead
on bia shoulders. Perhaps that is why
the skull was stolen, for it was traced to
the possession of an Illinois doctor.
