August 17, 1862

The Dakota War of 1862 began along the Minnesota River. It was a conflict between the United States and several bands of the eastern Dakota that began as an effort by the Dakota to drive the whites out of their area.

Thanks to Duluth Public Schools for the research on September’s Day in History.

Thanks also to Minnesota’s Learn and Serve America Service Learning Program for their help.
