Dakota Conflict film shown at Jackson MN

Great day at Jackson MN despite the rain. Nearly 300 folks showed up at the State theater downtown to see the 1973 twin cities public TV presentation of the Dakota Conflict. Ol' Ryker stood up and invited everyone out to Fort Belmont for more Sioux Uprising memorabilia and a small number showed up. Sold 2 more copies of Blood on the Prairie - A Novel of the Sioux Uprising to Fort Belmont to replace the two copies they sold today, and they also bought the last hardcover limited edition of BOTP Sesquicentennial Edition for the raffle they'll have in a few weeks at the Buckskinners rendezvous. had lunch at the local cafe and guess what? It's an Embers! Remember them? Not many of them around any more. All day breakfast of sausage and eggs, hash browns and toast for $6.99. Can't beat that.

But heck, you don't have to come all the way to Jackson MN to get the book. You can read it right here at the link below. August 2012 is the 150th anniversary of Minnesota's Great Sioux Uprising that caused the death of the most civilians in an Indian war in U.S. history, and resulted in the hanging of 38 Sioux warriors on a huge gallows at Mankato, MN - the largest mass execution in U.S. history.
