Title The Final Treaty of the Black Hawk War
Description THE FINAL TREATY OF THE BLACK HAWK WAR Talula Frandsen Nelson P.O. Box 148 Mt. Pleasant, UT 84647 Non-Professional Division Honorable Mention Anecdote Willard Frandsen, my father, was nine years old when Brigham Young came to lit. Pleasant to make a peace treaty with the Indians. The prophet asked Will to go with Orson Hyde and others to Indianola where a number of Indians had made their homes. Will could speak the Indian language quite well as he had played with Indian boys while herding cows in the fields outside Mt. Pleasant. Will loved the Indian boys that lived there with their parents, and agreed to go. He had a great deal more love than fear for the Indians. Brigham Young gave him a blessing and promised him a safe return if he would ask Chief Walker to come to Mt. Pleasant on a certain day and sign the treaty. Will delivered the message and returned with the desired answer. On September 17, 1872, Chief Walker with his braves rode into town on horses. The Indians stopped under a large pine tree at the William H. Seeley home (where the Relic Hall is today). The white men stayed inside the house opening a window. After a handshake and a friendly greeting, the Indians made their mark on the document. This was the final and last treaty of the Black Hawk War. Source: Personal recollections. A3
