Outbreak and Massacre by the Dakota Indians in Minnesota in 1862


Marion P. Satterlee’s Minute Account of the Outbreak, with Exact Locations, Names of All Victims, Prisoners at Camp Release, Refugees at Fort Ridgely, etc. Complete List of Indians killed in battle and those hung, and those pardoned at Rock Island, Iowa

Much has been written about the 1862 Sioux Uprising, or Dakota Conflict, in Minnesota, as its impact was dramatic. An immediate result was the flight of nearly 40,000 people from their homes, and an estimated 1000 deaths. For many years, the value of this work has been recognized by the descendants of those who perished during the conflict. It will aid descendents attempting to identify their ancestors, and also help locate the sites where family members lost their lives. Not for the faint-hearted, this work contains accounts of the massacres, a chronological list of massacres, casualty lists, a description of the “scalp dance,” a new introduction and an original full name index.
