Title Indians and Settlers in Sanpete
Description On June 10th, 1866, Chief Black Hawk was wounded at Rocky Ford, eight miles Southwest of Salina. It was then he quit the fight. He was a very intelligent man. But after this time he had a decided character change. He was not vain, nor did he exhibit a 'Caesar's Complex" for glowing strategy as did Walker in an earlier era (1853 - 54). He accepted with grace, at Rocky Ford, the fact that he was beaten. In this he attained great nobility-Black Hawk left the warpath abruptly in the fall of 1866. He even went so far as to help arrange a peace parley with many still hostile chiefs. It was his influence that brought the peace talks to a final conclusion. In 1866 Black Hawk retired to the Uintah resevation, and although wounded, he took up fanning and was reported at the close of the season in 186° to "be the most industrious Indian fanner on the reservation. Still stranger ajnd more appealing were his last endeavors, tfhen he felt ultimate weakness creeping over him, he resolved to go to every town he had injured in his militant days and ask their forgiveness. This he did and then retired to Spring Lake, near Payson. It was here he was bom and it was here he died in the Fall of 1870. Sources: Deseret (1976) p. 46-47-Song af a Century, p. 23.
