September 13, 1838

— Lagrange on Wabash River —

Over 850 Potawatomi Indians camped here on the Wabash River in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, Sept. 13, 1838, on the forced removal from Indiana to Kansas. There were 106 sick so two doctors were called in, Drs. Ritchie & son. Sanford Cox later wrote in old Settlers: tears fell from the cheek of the downcast warrior, old men trembled, matrons wept, the swarthy maidens's cheek turned pale. . .sad as a funeral procession.
