The Indian motif
"By thy rivers gently flowing
O'er thy prairies verdant growing
Comes the echo on the breeze-"
of that race of Illini, the hunters and warriors, who gave the name to the
rivers, the Illinois and Kickapoo rivers, not far from Rushville. It was that
race who built small mounds found along our rivers, the largest one near
Rushville being Dickson Mound at Lewistown. This huge mound, crescent-
shaped, contains more than two hundred skeletons and is the largest and
most interesting display of its kind in the state. There one can see the Indian
skeletons and other objects kept in exactly the same position in which they
Evidences of Indian occupation have been found in Schuyler county.
Indicm battles must have been fought here, for scores of Indian beads and
many battle axes have been found near Camden, Huntsville, and Ray.
There are as many as twenty or twenty-five Indian mounds near Rush-
ville. One of the closest, five miles south, has been dug into, but no record
tells just what was ever found.
We are near enough Peoria to mention that around Peoria Lake was a
favorite meeting place, for many tribes of Indians went there to hunt and fish
and at one time, near the present site of Peoria, the Indian villages had from
one hundred to four hundred sixty lodges.
Numerous towns in Illinois bear Indian names. Very appropriate are
"We drove the Indians out of the land
But a dire revenge these redmen planned
For they fastened a name to every nook
And every boy with a spelling book
Will have to toil till his hair turns gray
Before he can spell them the proper way."
Of Schuyler county we might say:
"Here lived and loved another race of beings
Beneath the same sun that rolls over our heads
The Indian hunter pursued the parting deer."
