This road followed an Indian trail that began in Chicago and went through DuPage, Kane, De Kalb, Boone, and Winnebago Counties to a Winnebago Village at Beloit, Wisconsin. In August, 1832, during the Black Hawk War, United States Army reinforcements from the Eastern Department followed the trail. Their general, Winfield Scott, left Chicago ahead of the troops and took a different route to the war area. Delayed by cholera, his men did not reach the front until after Black Hawk's defeat. The tracks left by heavy army wagons formed a road for early settlers.Erected by the Du Page Chapter, Daughters of the American Colonists, and the Illinois State Historical Society, 1974
