Product Description

In August 1862, after decades of broken treaties, increasing hardship, and relentless encroachment on their lands, a group of Dakota warriors convened a council at the tepee of their leader, Little Crow. Knowing the strength and resilience of the young American nation, Little Crow counseled caution, but anger won the day. Forced to either lead his warriors in a war he knew they could not win or leave them to their fates, he declared, “[Little Crow] is not a coward: he will die with you.”

So began six weeks of intense conflict along the Minnesota frontier as the Dakotas clashed with settlers and federal troops, all the while searching for allies in their struggle. Once the uprising was smashed and the Dakotas captured, a military commission was convened, which quickly found more than three hundred Indians guilty of murder. President Lincoln, embroiled in the most devastating period of the Civil War, personally intervened in order to spare the lives of 265 of the condemned men, but the toll on the Dakota nation was still staggering: a way of life destroyed, a tribe forcibly relocated to barren and unfamiliar territory, and 38 Dakota warriors hanged—the largest government-sanctioned execution in American history.

Scott W. Berg recounts the conflict through the stories of several remarkable characters, including Little Crow, who foresaw how ruinous the conflict would be for his tribe; Sarah Wakefield, who had been captured by the Dakotas, then vilified as an “Indian lover” when she defended them; Minnesota bishop Henry Benjamin Whipple, who was a tireless advocate for the Indians’ cause; and Lincoln, who transcended his own family history to pursue justice.

Written with uncommon immediacy and insight, 38 Nooses details these events within the larger context of the Civil War, the history of the Dakota people, and the subsequent United States–Indian wars. It is a revelation of an overlooked but seminal moment in American history.

Lincoln Park finances under scrutiny - Denton Record Chronicle

A federal grand jury is investigating allegations of financial irregularities in Lincoln Park, according to court documents obtained by the Denton Record Chronicle. Lincoln Park, Cross Roads, Oak Point and Little Elm are battling in court over annexation and boundary adjustment agreements. According to the grand jury subpoena, federal investigators are seeking all town records from 1970 to the present, including bank accounts, franchise tax reports and financial documents related to contractors, vendors and utility service providers. They also want all records pertaining to the Economic Development Corporation in Lincoln Park. “It’s not out of the ordinary,” said Rider Scott, Lincoln Park town attorney. But Scott is wrong. The grand jury subpoena, dated April 22, says in bold type the subpoena “pertains to ongoing investigation(s) of a sensitive and confidential nature. Grand jury subpoenas raise the possibility of future criminal indictments, but no one has been accused of wrongdoing in connection with Lincoln Park town government. However, in addition to issuing subpoenas, the FBI also has interviewed several people who have knowledge of Lincoln Park’s town government and its financial dealings. Lincoln Park currently is involved in two lawsuits against Little Elm. In both lawsuits, the towns of Cross Roads, Oak Point and Lincoln Park are trying to stop the courts from approving Little Elm’s annexations and boundary adjustment affecting Lincoln Park property. Scott, a former prosecutor himself, said he was told the federal investigation had come up during the depositions of Judith House, Lincoln Park town secretary and alderman, and Loretta Ray, the town’s mayor. Most Lincoln Park residents live in the Lincoln Park Manor mobile home park. They learned in early February that Nathaniel Parker, town manager and a founder of Lincoln Park, had sold the trailer park to Centurion American Development Group, which wants to redevelop the land for commercial use. The residents also learned their mobile home park is within the town limits of Little Elm because of a recent boundary adjustment agreement that was approved late last year. Sources claim the FBI has been looking into the events unfolding in Lincoln Park for several weeks. The FBI has declined comment on the nature of its inquiries into Lincoln Park.

  • Vindicating Lincoln

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. 2008. ISBN: 9781442200647,1442200642. 376 pages.

    Was Abraham Lincoln a racist, as some critics would have us believe? Was he the father of big government, as some others maintain? Was the sixteenth president a traitor to the cause of free society and constitutional government? Are the political principles that guided him relevant today? In this provocative and timely book, Thomas L. Krannawitter sets out to defend the man many consider to be our greatest president from critics on both the left and the right. For although public opinion polls tend to rank Lincoln among the country's most venerated presidents, he is also, paradoxically, the president who is least understood. While Lincoln's name is frequently invoked in contemporary American politics, few Americans understand or agree with the moral and political principles for which Lincoln gave his last full measure of devotion. Many influential authors view Lincoln as an antiquated monument, a man of his age who knew only nineteenth-century prejudices and lacked twenty-first-century enlightenment. Other writers denounce Lincoln as a tyrant who trampled upon the Constitution and states' rights, and thereby inaugurated big government and the kind of politics feared by the Founding Fathers. Krannawitter argues that both views spring from a misunderstanding of Lincoln. Today, at precisely the moment when America is most in need of his moral and political understanding, we are more removed from Lincoln's thought than ever before. Vindicating Lincoln reintroduces us to Lincoln the statesman, the man who defended our greatest ideals of freedom and equality at the darkest moment in American history. Krannawitter shows us why it is in our interest not only to learn about Abraham Lincoln, but to learn from him—to understand that Lincoln's guiding principles were true not only for his time, but that they remain true for ours as well. On the eve of the bicentennial of his birth in 2009, Lincoln can offer moral and political guidance to us all.
