Official Website

On 1 February 1834 the state approved the creation of this county, directing that it be named for Isaac White of Equality, Illinois, who was killed at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811. White was a Colonel in the Illinois militia, who volunteered to serve as a Private in the Indiana militia in the march against Prophetstown. He was placed under the command of Kentucky Maj. Joseph Hamilton Daveiss. The two exchanged swords in a demonstration of mutual respect at Fort Vincennes. In the Battle of Tippecanoe, they died together and were buried in a common grave at Battle Ground.
