Lakes Area Unlimited Learning will host an event titled “The Dakota War” from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14, at Heartwood Senior Living in Crosby.
David Gray is the presenter. According to a news release, the Dakota War in 1862 was the single largest mass killing of American citizens prior to 9/11, culminating in the largest mass execution in U.S. history. The consequences for the sovereign Dakota nation were irreparable and are often buried by the events of the ongoing Civil War, the release stated.
Everyone is welcome to attend. There is a $5 admission fee for people who are not Unlimited Learning members.
