Henry Dodge, first Territorial governor of Wisconsin, is a well-known Midwestern figure. Historian Tracey Lee Roberts will shed light on Dodge’s command of his Michigan Mounted Volunteers in the conflict known as the Blackhawk War. Viewing Blackhawk and his people as an existential threat to his way of life, Dodge reached new heights of fame when Blackhawk’s Band was decimated.

Everyone is welcome. The program is free, although donations to the society’s programming are gratefully accepted. Refreshments follow. Annual membership fees are payable at this meeting as well!
