Excerpt from The Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 19: Published Semi-Monthly; September 1, 1884
In the year 1862 a most appall ing massacre occurred in Minn csota in which hundreds of un suspecting settlers lost their lives through the treachery of the Indians. Little Crow, the principal chief in this bloody the battle OF new ulm tragedy, had, for some time, been quietly laboring at farming and other peaceable pursuits on the reservation, and although the suspicions of Major Galbraith, who commanded the troops in that neighborhood, had, on more than one occasion, been aroused, he was again quieted by the apparent innocence of the wily leader.
On the 17th of August, Little Crow attended meeting, as was his custom, and seemed to be much interested in the ser mon. That same evening he held a council with Others of his race, in the country, at which the diabolical plans for the mas sacre were arranged. 'before the next morning hundreds of warriors were distributed among the settlements in a region of at least forty miles in extent.
