Battle of Kellogg's Grove

I have a continuing interest in the Blackhawk War. Said battle occurred in 1832.

This was a time preceding the invitation to easterners, like Thoreau and Emerson, to come out and visit the wild American frontier. Now that the Indians were vanquished. Also, there was a tussle as to where the borderline between Wisconsin and Illinois should be. It almost happened that Wisconsin would have included Rockford, Illinois, and surrounding areas. Also, this time preceded the emergence of the many great circuses, which were centered around Darlington, Wisconsin, which invited people to gaze upon the great wildness of creatures framing the fringes of our great Empire. I hope to post about the latter, um, later.

This day in History!
