Battle of Kellogg's Grove
This June 16-25, 1832 battle, were (two battles actually were fought) fought north of the American fortification of Fort Wilbourn, in Illinois. It was the last battle of the so called Black Hawk War fought in Illinois. Most of the Illinois Anishinabek reached the Missouri then Kansas region. As many as 200 or more Anishinabe soldiers, ambushed a contingent of American soldiers who were probably on the search for them to attempt to halt the exodus. Anishinabe scouts probably learned of the force of American soldiers then told their commanders of their presence nearby, which led them to order their soldiers to lay an ambush. The American soldiers were spooked enough by the surprise Indian ambush, they retreated back to the safety of a barn. However, the Anishinabe soldiers bravely pursued the fleeing American soldiers to the barn, and actually attempted to take the stronghold. They failed however. Around 15 Anishinabe soldiers were killed or wounded (9 were killed) during the battle, while the fleeing Americans suffered eight killed or wounded (5 were killed) in this battle. After this battle the remaining battles were fought in Wisconsin. American soldiers were reinforced with Dakota soldiers during the battles fought in Wisconsin.
