The Indian Captives Reprint
The grant funded the execution of four maps and the acquisition of ten photographs for reproduction in the book, A Thrilling Narrative of Indian Captivity, which is scheduled for release by the University of Nebraska Press in 2012. The addition of these maps and photos to the educational resources of the Pond Dakota Heritage Society helps to clarify the story of American-Dakota contact, especially in relationship to the 1862 U.S.-Dakota War.
