Named De Soto 1855.

The first Winnebago chief Winneshiek fought with British at Mackinac 1812, at Sandusky 1813 and helped McKay take Prairie du Chien from U.S. in 1814. He died at Lansing Iowa in 1848. Legend since 1855 claims his burial on Mt. Winneshiek. The second chief of this name was removed to Neb.

De Soto is built over an Indian cemetery and undoubtedly here lie braves who, led by Charles de Langlade, fought Braddock in 1755 and at Quebec in 1759 when Wolfe and Montcalm were slain.
