Краткое описание

38 Nooses: Lincoln, Little Crow, and the Beginning of the Frontier's End.

In August 1862, after decades of broken treaties and encroachment on their lands, a group of Dakota warriors convened a council at the tepee of their leader Taoyateduta, or Little Crow. He counseled caution, but their anger would not be appeased. Forced to lead his warriors in a war he knew they could not win, he proclaimed, "Taoyateduta is not a coward: he will die with you." Here the author of Grand Avenues: The Story of Pierre Charles L'Enfant chronicles six weeks of intense conflict along the Minnesota frontier, concluding with the capture of more than 300 Indian fighters and the forced relocation of the Dakotas. Despite the ongoing Civil War, and his own family history with hostile Indians, Abraham Lincoln personally intervened to release 265 men—though 38 were hanged, in the largest mass execution in U.S. history."A gripping narrative of this little-known conflict and a careful exploration of the relationships between events of the Civil War and America's expansion west.... Although the reader knows the eventual outcome of these battles—near extermination of Indian tribes and cultures—[Scott] Berg maintains suspense about individual fates to round out this nuanced study of a complex period."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
