Black Hawk War Treaty Plaque
This boulder and plaque are on the spot in Davenport where treaty negotiations took place with General Winfield Scott and Chiefs Keokuk and Waupella, ending the Black Hawk War. The treaty was signed on September 21, 1832. General Scott was a hero in the War of 1812 and the Mexican War. He was the General in Chief at the start of the Civil War but was replaced due to his age and poor health. This plaque was erected by the DAR in 1917. It is near the Harrison Street entrance to LeClaire Park - it sets near the walk along the River. Photo taken 6/10/11.
