Black Hawk War Lecture
Jan 24, 2013 5:30-7:30
Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum, 411 Kent Street, Rcokfrod, IL 61102
Thursday, January 24 at 5:30, Tinker will have the first lecture of the year concerning the Black Hawk War of 1832. The lecture will be given by local historian, Steve Litteral. Steve has an M.A. in military history, is a veteran of the US Army, and has studied the Black Hawk War for years. There are many misconceptions of the Black Hawk War, and the lecture will separate the fact from fiction. If you are interested in early local history, this will be a great chance for you to learn more about the Rock River Valley. There will be time for questions after the lecture. The charge is $5 per person.
