Nomenclature[edit]

While I am waiting on a book to arrive, written last year, I am torn about whether this should be moved to Buffalo Grove ambush or Battle of Buffalo Grove. A couple reasons, one death isn't really a massacre, nor is it really a massacre if it involves armed soldiers during wartime. Any thoughts? IvoShandor 04:27, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

That same thought did occur to me. Did contemporary sources call it that? Do current historical works call it that? If it's the standard nomenclature we should use it, but it seems a very odd name. Shimgray | talk | 13:50, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
I have seen it named this way in books, but the "m" in massacre was never capitalized, so it is hard to say. That book you were telling me about Ivo, I am pretty sure it will have some answers.--Kranar drogin 14:04, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
The marker says "Indian ambush," massacre is how it is described in most historical works. I am leaning toward ambush myself. IvoShandor 22:56, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

GA[edit]

Taking into the account the obscurity of this event, it seems that this is a reasonable level of detail that one can expect for a unexpected ambush scuffle involving six people and an unrecorded number of American Indians. A variety of quite specific and zoomed in sources have been used and that shows that the research has been through. The article foolows MOS and is NPOV and has NOR. I guess the only problem is that the article might be AfDed or proposed for merging, but I don;t think that;s up to me to decide. Blnguyen (bananabucket) 05:10, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

I could make a pretty strong argument for keeping but I don't think that will happen, it meets notability, its been written about in secondary sources. Has 9 sources and is over 6 kb, I don't think anyone would want to merge it. The only place would be Black Hawk War and that's getting pretty long too. : ) Also I am consulting other sources as well for potential expansion or detail. IvoShandor 05:48, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

GA Sweeps Review: Pass[edit]

As part of the WikiProject Good Articles, we're doing sweeps to go over all of the current GAs and see if they still meet the requirements of the GA criteria. I'm specifically going over all of the "Conflicts, battles and military exercises" articles. I believe the article currently meets the criteria and should remain listed as a Good article. If you have any questions, let me know on my talk page and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. I have edited the article history to reflect this review.
