On July 22, during the Black Hawk War of 1832, Sac Indian leader Black Hawk and about 700 followers escaped down the Wisconsin River after the Battle of Wisconsin Heights. Traveling the river in hastily built canoes and rafts or on foot along the river, the Indians managed to stay ahead of the pursuing military. On July 26th to the 28th at the old abandoned Village of Helena, about 3 miles west of hear, the military crossed the Wisconsin River in their search for Black Hawk.
