During the winter of 1862-1863, as a result of the tragic U.S.-Dakota War, more than 1.600 Dakota, mostly women,children and old men, were confined within a wooden palisade on the bottom lands below Fort Snelling. Many died from sickness. This scene was painted as the cover for a book by Corinne Marz on the experiences of the Dakota during the war and their confinement at Fort Snelling.
