»Attack at Ament's Cabin

During the course of the Black Hawk War, one particular incident struck fear into the hearts of the region's settlers. The attack at Ament's Cabin occurred during a fateful June day in 1832. After hearing reports of the growing Black Hawk conflict, residents John Ament and Elijah Philips fled the property, returning a few weeks later to collect their belongings. Little did the two men and their accompanying soldiers know that Black Hawk warriors were lurking in the bushes, having heard of their return the previous day. When Philips left for his own cabin a short distance away, he was shot through by musket fire and leapt upon by thirty Native Americans who assailed him with tomahawks. The remaining men barricaded themselves in the cabin until the warriors retreated, leaving Philips body at rest in the front yard of the house. The attack riled local settlers, nervous about the territorial disputes between the native settlers and the encroaching pioneers.
