In Minnesota, August 1862, a smoldering conflict between the U.S. government and the Dakota Sioux finally erupted into war.

The savage battle that followed forced President Lincoln to pull troops from the Civil War and send them to Minnesota to quell the uprising.

In this multimedia presentation, award-winning speaker Sue Baugh explains how this forgotten conflict led to the largest mass execution in U.S. history and left a legacy that still haunts both sides of the conflict.
