Monday marks 150 years since the Battle at KILLDEER Mountain, event that shaped North Dakota in ways felt more than a century later. As one of western-most Civil War-era battles, KILLDEER Mountain Battle was a turning point in Dakota History, says writer Jennifer Strange, Co-coordinator of the commemoration event beginning at 9 am Saturday at Dunn County Historical Society and Museum, where she also sit on board. But for many outside of the State-even inside the State-conflict between the US military and the gathering of Teton, Yanktonai and Dakota Indians doesnt carry the same weight as other Civil War-era battles like Gettysburg or Antietam. Its not much taught about, or, for that matter, discuss, say Tom Isern, North Dakota State University professor of History. Here in North Dakota, there is just a little postage stamp of a historic site. Hardly anybody goes there. It very much neglect and overlooked chapter in history, he say. Some State Historians say they hope that by commemorating events of 1864, it will bring renewed attention to their impact on the State, particularly on Native American communities. It is a good time to reflect on this, says Diane Rogness, Historic sites manager with the State Historical Society of North Dakota. The impact of the two-day Battle in 1864 cannot be understate, she add. It very significant, she say. It changed the way of life for Sioux and for the settlement of Dakota territory. It changed the world. It changed history. Remembering Battle She and several others-including United Tribes Technical College instructor of Native Studies Dakota Good House and Standing Rock Sioux tribal historian Ladonna Brave Bull Allard-will speak at Dunn County Museum on Saturday on a panel discussing the significance of Battle, which saw General Alfred Sully and 2 200 troops launch attack on estimate 1 600 Indians who had gather at sacred Site of KILLDEER Mountain. Anywhere from 31 to 100 Indians were killed in the conflict, depending on whose Historical account you read, as well as two US Soldiers. Troops target women, children and other non-combatants, even returning to burn down lodges and buffalo meat, and shoot abandoned dogs and horses, according to Historians. The Bloody assault was and is regarded as a punitive campaign for the Dakota War of 1862, in which Sully and General Henry Sibley sent forces in to quell an uprising of Dakota Indians in Minnesota anger over late payments from the US for their land. Sully and his men either didnt know or didnt care that most of Indian Tribes at KILLDEER Mountain two years later had no involvement with the Dakota War, historians say. Though KILLDEER Mountain was theoretically punishment for hostilities in Minnesota, it was beyond any provocation that took place in Minnesota, Isern say. This was about the fate of North Dakota territory, he say.
