Battle of Campbell's Island Monument
Birth: unknown
Death: Jul. 10, 1814

Monument. Dedicated to ten U.S. Army regulars, four Illinois Rangers, one woman, and one child killed during the Battle of Campbell's Island during the War of 1812. U.S. forces (33 regulars and 65 Illinois Rangers), led by Lieutenants John Campbell, Stephen Rector, Jonathan Riggs, and John Weaver, clashed with pro-Britain Sac (Sauk) and Fox (Mesquakie) warriors led by War Chief Black Hawk. The Native warriors won the battle, repulsing the American keel boats. (bio by: Dustin Oliver)
