by Eugene C. Stevens




In the spring of 1832, 275 Illinois militiamen under the command of Major Isaiah Stillman were sent on a mission to capture or destroy the infamous Chief Black Hawk and subdue the warriors that followed him into Illinois to reclaim their homeland. Stillmans expedition earned the title of the Forlorn Hope, as they found themselves up against superior numbers of warriors with the very real possibility of being completely wiped out. A small contingent of Rangers held their ground and covered the retreat of their fellow Rangers. Many lost their lives, but many others lived to tell the truth about what had really occurred on that day. Last Stand at Old Mans Creek is the true and correct story of what occurred and the aftermath of the battle that would smear the names of the men who were there. This finally answers the questions that have lingered for nearly two centuries about the circumstances surrounding the surprising defeat of the militia on that fatal day.
