The injustices Native Americans have borne throughout the history of the modern United States are rarely taught, and scarcely mentioned. Lincoln's Bishop shines a light on one event that stands at the intersection of 19th century Native rights, war, and Christianity.

This is the account of Henry Benjamin Whipple, the Dakota War of 1862, and the largest mass execution on American soil. Whipple was a man beyond his time, who as a missionary, acknowledged that Native peoples should not be dispossessed of their land, and who advocated a reform of the corrupt and brutal Office of Indian Affairs. He had a goal: that Indians should be protected from corrupt government agents and traders, particularly those who cheated with liquor and brutally abused Native women. These abuses eventually led to the Dakota War of 1862, during which approximately 800 settlers died. In its wake, settlers demanded mass executions of Dakota.and Whipple went to President Abraham Lincoln.

Lincoln personally reviewed each case and commuted close to 300 death sentences that had been meted out in hasty, farcical trials. While those he left to die-38 w arriors-would still make up the largest mass American execution, Whipple's efforts saved many. While the hangings are still controversial today, and its aftermath-the rounding up and incarceration of close to 2,000 Dakota at Fort Snelling in inhumane conditions, and the mutilation of the bodies by the community-decidedly make up another chapter of abuses, this fascinating account shines light onto the efforts of one man determined to move in the direction of righteousness.

210 pages, indexed, hardcover with dust jacket.
