Presentation: Henry Sibley and the Dakota

Date(s) - 03/19/2017
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Gideon and Agnes Pond House


John Haymond, author of “The Infamous Dakota War Trials of 1862,” will speak about Henry Sibley and his complex relationship with the Dakota before, during, and after the U.S./Dakota War of 1862.

Sibley interacted with the Dakota as a friend, family member, business associate, negotiator, politician, advocate, adversary, and judge. All of those experiences combine to create the full picture of his very complicated history with the Dakota – both positive and negative.

John Haymond is the executive director of the Mower County Historical Society in Austin, Minnesota.
