On the way to Stillman Valley

It's three miles from here to Stillman Valley, to the north. Maybe some of the militia soldiers who fled from Black Hawk's counterattack at Stillman's Run in May, 1832 came running this way. Probably so, since they ran in a lot of directions - mostly south, away from Black Hawk.
