The Indian uprising of 1862 is an interesting "sideshow" regarding Minnesota and the ACW.

There is a lot more to the story of the Mankato 38, than what Wikipedia tells. It is quite sad, quite haunting. Research it, visit the annual events commemorating the 38. See, hear, and learn for yourself.

And, No, it is not hateful towards the Dakota/Lakota peoples, nor any other Native Americans. The wounds from that event, are still fresh for everyone, even those of us whose ancestors arrived long after the war, who had nothing to do with it. It was, and it continues to be, a terrible tragedy.

Of course, there is more than what is in a Wikipedia article. Who suggested otherwise?
