An Aspect of the Civil War I Did Not Know

I was aware of Indian involvement in the Confederacy and Union sides during the Civil War and under the impression that they tended to back the Confederacy, probably on the chance that they would be treated more fairly by them than they were by the U.S. government.  They knew how they would be treated by the latter.

I also knew of Indian-white conflict, but nothing about the U.S.-Dakota 1862 War as it is apparently called.

That is the thing about these blogs, I am always learning stuff I didn't know.

I will be delving more into this conflict in the days to come.
