Rose Pink Sabatia angularis (Gentian) - also Marsh Pink and Bitterbloom

This pretty pink flower grows in a cluster to about 6 inches tall before it becomes prostrate and starts to look like it is creeping along like a phlox.
Its distribution is Wisconsin in the west to southern Ontario and New York in the east, southward to Florida and Texas according to http://www.nearctica.com/flowers/dtoh/gentian/Sangul.htm.

Rose Pink is a biennial, also known as Marsh Pink and Bitterbloom according to http://2bnthewild.com/plants/H361.htm.
