The Battle Creek neighborhood is nestled between Indian Mounds Park and south Maplewood and is home to a 1,840-acre park called Battle Creek Regional Park with walking and hiking trails; woods; wetlands; and grasslands. Families enjoy the summer outdoor aquatic center and picnic areas. Did you know the Battle of Battle Creek is ‘one of the earliest accounts of conflict that documents the summer of 1842 when the Chippewa of the St. Croix planned a sharp blow against the Sioux village of Kaposia on the west bank of the Mississippi. According to the account, a band of approximately 100 warriors marched to the bluff near Pig’s Eye. The attackers hid in the deep ravine near the mouth of what is now called Battle Creek, east of the Mississippi, to await a proper moment for the attack. Two Dakota women were hoeing corn in a field in front of their position at Pig’s Eye Lake. The warriors fired upon the women killing one and mortally wounding the other.
The Dakota warriors of Kaposia heard the sound of guns and they rallied to fight the Chippewa. Parties circled and fought. Hand-to-hand encounters and gunfire were exchanged for approximately two hours. Finally, the Chippewa withdrew, defeated.
