Volunteer soldiers Adrian J. Ebell (1840-1877), a pioneering photojournalist, and Albert Colgrave (1839-1863), a professional graphic artist, tell their own versions of the war in words and images.
Unique, eyewitness accounts of the Sioux Uprising that swept across southwestern Minnesota in August 1862, when the federal government failed to pay annuities to starving Sioux (Dakota) Indians. This catastrophic war left a trail of death and destruction and many stories about what happened.
Compilers and editors Alan R. Woolworth and Mary H. Bakeman contribute an invaluable context for this remarkable collection, with biographical sketches of Ebell and Colgrave; texts of Ebell's articles based on interviews with white, Indian, and mixed-blood Dakota participants; reproductions of Ebell's photographs, Colgrave's unique sketches (many never before published), and the engravings made from them used to illustrate Ebell's Harper's New Monthly Magazine article; authoritative lists of white captives held by the Dakotas in early September, 1862, and the white casualties of the Battle of Birch Coulee; a bibliography; and a full index.
