SCHRC Second Saturdays to review Black Hawk War

Second Saturdays-Journeys into Local History sponsored by the Sheboygan County Historical Research Center continues its season on Saturday, Dec. 13, when former state archaeologist Bob Birmingham gives his historical perspective on Life, Death and Archaeology at Fort Blue Mounds in Dane County.

This presentation is an archaeological detective story illuminating the lives of white settlers in the lead-mining region during the tragic events of the historically important conflict known as the Black Hawk War.

Focusing on the strategically located Fort Blue Mounds in southwestern Wisconsin, Robert A. Birmingham summarizes the 1832 conflict and details the history of the fort, which played a major role not only in U.S. military and militia operations, but also in the lives of the white settlers who sought refuge there.

The event will take place at the Plymouth Arts Center, located at 520 East Mill St. in Plymouth, from 9:30-11:30 a.m.

Open to the public, this free presentation is appropriate for adults and students 10 and older. No reservations are needed.
