Drift and Ramble EP 23 Dakota 38
4 days ago
As more and more white settlers move into the Minnesota Territory, the Dakota are pushed on to smaller and smaller bits of a land. When the mounting tensions finally come to a boil, the results are tragic and costly for all involved. The story of the Dakota 38 is about America's largest mass execution. This important part of American history is often overlooked or ignored. Even my own father, who was born and raised in Minnesota, was not aware of these events. This episode includes graphic descriptions of violence. Listener discretion is advised.
