Excerpt from The Iowa Journal of History and Politics, Vol. 1: January, 1903
The first recorded interview between the white man and the Indian, within the limits of the present State of Iowa, was incident to the landing of Joliet and Marquette upon the west bank of the Mississippi on the 25th of June, 1673. The exact locality in which this interview was held has always been a matter of doubt. That the subject is one of some interest is shown by the fact that a number of points have been named as probable sites of the landing of the two explorers upon the occasion in question. Among these may be mentioned Montrose, Sandusky, and the mouth of Lemoiliese Creek or Bloody Run - all in Lee County. Writers have generally agreed upon placing the landing near the mouth of the Des Moines river, but both Shea and Parkman favor some stream further north. It was certainly near to some western tributary of considerable size.
Though Joliet was the nominal head of this memorable expedition, the first to make known the true course of the Mississippi, we owe relatively little of our knowledge regarding it to documents which he has left. Most unfortunately, on his way back to Quebec in the following spring, his canoe was wrecked in the rapids of La Chine just above Montreal, two of his companions being drowned and his box of papers lost. Thus it happens that we owe such knowledge as we have of the details of the expedition to the accounts furnished by Marquette.
