This book treats the history of the 1832 Illinois uprising of the Sauk Fox Indians led by legendary chief Black Hawk—which was the last instance of serious Indian resistance east of the Mississippi River. On the army side, Zachary Taylor and Winfield Scott saw service in this two and a half month “war”, as did Jefferson Davis, and young volunteer Captain Abraham Lincoln, a company officer of “Whiteside’s Brigade [4th Regiment]. Lincoln would later say that his election to company captain gave him more pleasure than any other election of his life. Fine collectible.
