Atwater was one of three commissioners appointed to negotiate with the Indians. This treaty ceded most of the lead region in southwestern Wisconsin and northern Illinois to the U.S. for $500,000 to be paid over 30 years, plus $30,000 in goods and $20,000 in damages for intrusions by squatters. This is the full text of Atwater's book.
