Atkinson, Henry "The Battle of Bad Axe: General Atkinson's report"

The Battle of the Bad Axe: General Atkinson's Report: A brief history of the Black Hawk War precedes the reprinted document by General Henry Atkinson (1782-1842), who commanded U.S. Army forces during the war. In Atkinson' s report to Major General Winfield Scott (1786-1866), he describes the Battle of the Bad Axe not as a personal narrative but rather as a formal military report emphasizing troop movements and fighting.
