History of the Butterfly, Part 69: The Battle

 Here is a description of the actual battle of Campbell’s Island.  The source is Meese, 1904 (see the references page).

Campbell’s Island is just a few miles upstream from Rock Island, the home of Saukenuk.

The map is from a copy of the Iowa DOT highway map.
