During the Black Hawk War of 1832, Black Hawk's band and the pursuing military ventured into this unknown terrain of steep ridges and valleys. Following nearby Mill Creek, some of the band headed over these rugged hills known as the Ocooch Mountains. Along the way, many Indians died from exhaustion, starvation and battle wounds.
The marker is located in Boaz Community Park on State Highway 171, north of its intersection with Park Drive, at 17010 State Highway 171, Richland Center, Wisconsin 53581.
