Book description:
Massacre at Bad Axe: in the Black Hawk War, concludes the Black Hawk War Trilogy of Atkinson’s military and other action in today’s Dane, Iowa, Sauk, Crawford, Vernon and Grant counties of Wisconsin against the Sauk, Fox and Kickapoo Indians. It details the Indians’ futile fight for freedom and describes the final destruction of Black Hawk’s band in the tragic encounter which took place on the 1st and 2nd of August, 1832, at the Mississippi River just below the mouth of the Bad Axe River and just opposite the mouth of the upper Iowa River.

“Our braves, but few in number, finding that the enemy paid no regard to age or sex, and seeing that they were murdering helpless women and little children, determined to fight until they were killed! As many women as could, commenced swimming the Mississippi, with their children on their backs. A number of them were drowned, and some shot before they could reach the opposite shore.”

Freeze dried food is a Native Invention. The Inca of Peru used to preserve potatoes using a freeze-dry process. They would put them on mountain terraces, and the solar radiation and extremely cold temperatures created a freeze-dried product that lasted indefinitely.
