The Steamship Warrior Fights Native Americans on the Mississippi

This engraving illustrates the scene of the last fight of the tenacious Chief Black Hawk. Black Hawk (1767-1838) had fought alongside the Shawnee chief Tecumseh in the War of 1812. In this scene, he is attacked by whites on the Warrior, while hostile Sioux wait on the opposite bank. Later on in his life, having served time in jail, Black Hawk became a celebrity and the government sent him on a tour of the country.
