Excerpt from A Sioux Story of the War: Chief Big Eagle's Story of the Sioux Outbreak of 1862
The stories of the great Sioux war in Minnesota in 1862 never grow old. They are always new to many and never dull to any body. Although thirty-two years, nearly a third of a century, have passed since that eventful episode, yet to many it seems but a few months since barbarism rode rampant over a great part of the state, and civilization, gashed and bleeding, was prone on the prairies, with to bind up the wounds. All over the state are survivors of that terrible contest who remem ber its incidents and relate them as if the crack of the riﬂe and the din of the war-whoop yet rang in their ears. The story is always of interest to them.
There are two sides to this as to every other story. The ver sion of the white people ought to be well enough known. But the Indian Side, strangely enough, has not been recorded. The soldiers of the Union read no stories of the great Rebellion with more interest than the narratives of the ex-confederates, and we never got the full and true story of the war until they began to write. So we can never fully understand the Sioux war of 1862 until the Indians tell their story.
