Fun Fact: The Eternal Indian, better known as the Black Hawk Statue, is a sculpture in Lowden State Park near the city of Oregon, Illinois. The 48-foot-tall concrete monument towers over the Rock River on a 77-foot bluff. Sculptor Lorado Taft said the statue was inspired by the Indian leader Black Hawk. Black Hawk was born in the village of Saukenuk on the Rock River, in present-day Rock Island, Illinois, in 1767. Black Hawk’s legacy is legendary. Of all the wars fought in United States history, the Black Hawk War is the only one named for a person. In 1833, Black Hawk’s life story became the first Native American autobiography published in the United States.
