The Sioux Uprising of 1862, also known as the Dakota War, sounded the first shots of a war that continued for another 28 years, culminating in the massacre of Indian women and children at Wounded Knee in 1890.
The coverage of the 1862 Dakota Conflict is sensationally superficial, in the "bloodthirsty savages" genre of some of the worst pulp histories.
The Uprising of the Santee Sioux of 1862 is an important episode in U.S history often ignored by history because it coincides with the civil war.
