RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 70718369 LA English T1 The Black Hawk War of 1832 A1 Jung, Patrick J.,, PB University of Oklahoma Press PP Norman YR 2007 SN 0806138114 9780806138114 AB "In 1832, facing white expansion, the Sauk warrior Black Hawk attempted to forge a pan-Indian alliance that would preserve the homelands of the confederated Sauk and Fox tribes on the eastern bank of the Mississippi. However, the ensuing war with the United States decimated Black Hawk's band. The conflict has captured the imagination of historians for more than a century, and Patrick J. Jung here re-examines its causes, course, and consequences. Correcting mistakes that plagued previous histories, Jung focuses on the complex nature of Indian resistance and the role of intertribal conflict in war."--Jacket.
