In 1838 the northern Potawatami tribes and many Indians from other tribes were forcibly relocated to Eastern Kansas.
The first point to encampment in Illinois on the march westward was near the North Fork River in Danville.
This monument is to commemorate the hardships, deaths and humiliation these people suffered during their forced passage. We salute their courage. It is in their memory we make this dedication. May 13, 1990
