This is a posted correction on material stated in this lecture:  President Lincoln did not commute the sentences of the convicted Dakota men.  Rather, he approved 39 convictions of capital punishment while the remainder were to be determined later.  Also, William Duley, the man who cut the rope at the hangings, did not lose his wife and five children.  Rather, three children were killed while his wife and two other children were taken captive.  At the time of the hangings they were presumed dead but were later rescued.

Minnesota Author and Historian

Hello.  My name is Colin Mustful and I am a Minnesota author and historian who focuses largely on the U.S. - Dakota War of 1862.  While attending graduate school in Mankato, I came across the statue of a buffalo that commemorates the hanging of thirty-eight Dakota Indians in Mankato on December 26, 1862, the largest mass execution in United States history.  I was shocked to find out that such a tragic event happened right where I lived and even more shocked that I had never learned about it in school.  This sparked my curiosity on the subject and led to me to do my own researching and writing on the topic.  I have since completed three cross-genre novels and one textbook regarding the people, places, and events of the U.S. - Dakota War of 1862.  It is my goal to introduce and educate people about this complex, tragic, and often misunderstood part of Minnesota history.  Hopefully, this will lead to discussion, understanding and reconciliation.
