On July 20th, during the Black Hawk War of 1832, Black Hawk led about 700 Sac, Fox and Kickapoo Indians past this point and through the "Third Lake Passage," the juncture of the Yahara River and Lake Monona. By sunset, the military also reached the passage but abandoned their chase at nightfall to camp in this vicinity.
