    Seeking records about Indian Removals especially from Milwaukee

    Hugh W Swofford Newbie

      My question will be about Indian Removals especially Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1838. I want to write an account of the removal of the Chippewa, Ottawa and Potawatomi United Nations under the Treaty of Chicago in 1833. Because of amendments it was treated as if it had taken place in 1835 and the three years expired in 1838. I have a good start but would just like to see what the government  has preserved in the Indian Removal files.. It occurred in the earlier part of that year, Jacques Vieau, jr was in charge who ironically was half French and half Native American. They were gathered in a field and fed at government expense until the removal began. I want to see if the government wrote any of this information down. There is also some information in annual reports..
