Saukenuk, the capital of the Sauk nation and one of the largest native American communities in North America, stood near this site overlooking the Rock River. Despite a "treaty of peace and friendship" signed in 1816, the immigrants kept coming, and the site is now in the metropolitan Quad Cities.

Most of the U.S. west of the Appalachian Mountains was settled, in one way or another, through illegal American immigration. The U.S. acquired a huge chunk of territory through illegal American immigration to The United States of Mexico.
