Memorial to 38 hanged Dakota men unveiled

Published 12/27/2012, The Jamestown Sun

Hundreds of people gathered Wednesday for the unveiling of a memorial to 38 Dakota men who were hanged 150 years ago to the day in what is the largest mass execution in U.S. history. About 60 horse riders, including some tribe members who rode for 16 days from South Dakota, were among the roughly 500 people on hand for the dedication of the “Dakota 38” memorial, which marks a dark chapter in the history of the region and country.
