' - >. . | HERO OF FORT DEARBORN WAS AN INDIAN BY ADOPTION Probably the first person kill ed in the Fort Dearborn massa cre was Captain William Wells, “Mad Anthony” Wayne's famous scout, for whom Wells street, Chicago, is named, according to research workers of the Illinois WPA Writers’ Project. Though a white man among the Indians he was known as “Black Snake” and was the adopted son of the great chief “Little Turtle of the Miamis. Commissioned a captain, “Billv” Wells served brilliantly at the battle of the Fallen Timber, where Wayne smashed a combined force of Indians and British. Months later many chiefs assem bled to’ discuss terms of a treaty of peace with General Wayne. Little Turtle was the ranking chief. An interpreter was need ed, Little Turtle said to Wayne: “You trust your great scout, Cap tain Wells; I trust my son Black Snake. He is the same man.” It is a matter of historic record that not one of the 75 Indians who signed the treaty ever vio lated it. Hearing that an attack was to be made on Fort Dearborn, WTells, with about 60 Miamis, rushed to its defense. Arriving the night before the evacuation he at tempted to dissuade Captain Heald from abandoning the fort, but Heald was unyielding, 'where upon Wells blackened his face as a token of approaching death and led the fatal procession from the stronghold. The Indians concentrated their attack upon him believing that if he could be killed the rest would be easy. What followed is ghastly history. -it The Chicago Bee has more net t paid circulation than any other local newspaper.
