Titus, William A., 1868-1951 "Historic spots in Wisconsin"

Historic Spots in Wisconsin: The Battle of Wisconsin Heights: After briefly summarizing the St. Louis Treaty of 1804 and Black Hawk's reasons for considering it invalid, this article reviews the major events of the 1832 Black Hawk War. It focuses in depth on the July 21, 1832, battle of Wisconsin Heights, during which a superior U.S. forces was held off by a small force of Sauk warriors long enough for their women and children to cross the Wisconsin River. It concludes with a long note by Louise Phelps Kellogg that establishes the precise location of the battle in the northeast quarter of section 24, Town of Mazomanie, Dane County. (6 pages)
