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.
