Minnesota Physicians in the 1862 Sioux Uprising
Much has been written of the Sioux Uprising in Minnesota in August of 1862, but little has been written about the physicians who were caught up in it. This book is an attempt to correct the omission. There were seven major battles on the Minnesota River in 1862-Lower Sioux Agency, Redwood Ferry, Upper Sioux Agency, Fort Ridgley, New Ulm, Birch Coulee, and Wood Lake. Physicians were present at most of these sites. What happened to each of them is not well known. Their stories are well worth telling.
