Wednesday, 11.30 at 7:30 pm: “The Dakota 38,” a film about the largest mass execution in US history


Abraham Lincoln signed an executive order for the execution of 38 Dakotas. They were hanged from a single scaffold the day after Christmas, 1862, in Mankato, Minnesota.  This documentary  remembers the 38, and also a group of Dakota who ride on horseback each year to Mankato to commemorate the executions of Dec. 26, 1862.

A discussion with John Kane will follow the screening.
