Not the same Black Hawk who resisted European encroachment in Illinois thirty years earlier, but a warrior chief also named Antonga, who led Utes, Navajos, and Paiutes in a series of stock raids on Mormon settlements in Utah territory from 1863 to 1867. The Mormon's hesitated to call for troops because of previous trouble they had had with the US government, and instead formed their own militia, the Nauvoo Legion. The resulting bloodshed degenerated into a war of vengeance that ended only in 1872 with the arrival of federal troops. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
