The Dakota War at William Mitchell College of Law

The William Mitchell College of Law is observing the 150-year anniversary of the Dakota War of 1862 with a series of events, lectures, law review articles, and a new course on Dakota Legal History.  An exhibit officially opens with a reception at 5 pm on Tuesday, January 17.

The exhibit "provides viewers with a visual history of the causes of the war, the conflict itself, and the aftermath."  It was developed by Mitchell’s Indian Law Program, with funding from the Minnesota Historical Society.
