The Indians' Revenge
Reverend Alexander Berghold

The Indians' Revenge tells about a classic chapter of American history--the 1862 Sioux uprising in Minnesota known as the Dakota Conflict. Rev. Alexander Berghold, the parish priest in New Ulm, Minnesota, wove together first-hand accounts of the uprising and its aftermath with the skill of a historian and the moral insight of a theologian. His work, published in 1891, looks squarely at the causes of the conflict and relates harrowing stories of its impact on both white settlers and Native Americans.
