Great Sauk Trail, The - Ontario Heritage Trust


Great Sauk Trail, The

Part of an ancient network of native paths, the Great Sauk Trail extended from Rock Island, Illinois, through Michigan to Amherstburg. Until the late 1830s, pro-British tribes made annual pilgrimages along the trail to Fort Malden where they participated in gift-giving ceremonies with officials of the British Indian Department.
