After the war and the Government forced the Sauk and Fox Indians to the west, the annexed land (northern Illinois)
was chopped up for settlers. The winter of 1836 was one of the coldest ever in that area and many of these pioneers died. The Great Spirit again? Today, we invade other nations to stop "ethnic cleansing" Our 19th century history is repeatably stained by that brand.
