New Ulm, Minnesota, bore the brunt of the Sioux Uprising in 1862 during two battles, which decided the fate of what became known as the Dakota Conflict. Drawn from Dr. Fritsche’s county history, this work provides a documentary history of the conflict, and elucidates New Ulmer citizen’s views of the conflict. The book is arranged in 6 parts: Biographical information about the Fritsche family, The Uprising (causes leading to the outbreak, complaints against Indian agents), Personal Accounts (vengeance on the traders, Theresa Henle’s Account), Punishment of the Sioux (the execution), Remembrance and Review (monuments), and an appendix which discusses Indian history and treaties, pioneer settlement and the City of New Ulm. Contains a new editor’s conclusion.
