Hi Larry,

Union Gen Burnside had nothing but praise for Gen Sigel, I've heard from other upper Union Officers that Sigel was definitely left wanting as a commanding officer!? What's with 39 Native Americans being hung in Minnesota?? Anyone?

Good CW post,
Thanks,
MD

There had been a large uprising of Sioux tribes earlier in 1862. After trials it was determined to hang 39 of the participants and ring leaders.
