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

Historic Spots in Wisconsin: This installment in the series is subtitled “Sauk City and Prairie du Sac, Twin Villages with a Historic Background.” It excerpts writings by Jonathan Carver (1710-1780), who visited the Sauk Indian town there in 1766, and Charles Gautier (ca. 1737-ca.1803), who passed through in 1778. The Sauk departed about 1783, and the next account of the area was by the Hungarian nobleman Agostin Haraszathy (1812-1870), who settled there in 1842. This brief history ends by recounting the Battle of Wisconsin Heights on July 21, 1832, during the Black Hawk War, which occurred just opposite the two towns. (7 pages)
