One of the most respected personages in Native American history, BLACK HAWK (1767-1838), Sauk war chief of the Native American tribe in Illinois, was already a renowned name in the early 1800s, having fought for the British during the War of 1812. By 1832, when Black Hawk led warriors against encroaching European settlers on Sauk lands, he was so well-known that the engagement became known as the Black Hawk War. In his 1833 autobiography, Black Hawk-dictating to American newspaper editor JOHN BARTON PATTERSON (1805-1890)-tells his tale, from the "Indian wars" as he saw them to his capture, in 1832, by American forces and his subsequent meeting with President Andrew Jackson and grand tour of the United States. A provocative look at Black Hawk's wisdom and, ironically, his misunderstanding of the politics of the United States, this is a fascinating firsthand account of one of the foundational philosophical battles of American history.
