Annotation In the spring of 1832, Black Hawk and his Sauk followers, including seven seven hundred warriors, rose up and defiantly crossed the Mississippi from Iowa to reclaim their ancestral home in Illinois. The rebellion was dashed in just three months, yet the violent encounter between white America and native people embodies the Republic's conflict between exalted ideals for freedom and human dignity and its insatiable appetite for territory. 2007.
