History of the Butterfly, Part 71: The Treaty of Ghent

Black Hawk and his British allies won the significant battles over the territory along the Mississippi River.  Then in December of 1814, the British and Americans signed the Treaty of Ghent.  The treaty granted the nations and tribes all of the territories and rights they had before the war—essentially negating all of those hard-won victories.

This image of the front page of the treaty is available at the national archives website, as well as a transcript of the treaty.
