    The Dakota War was an armed conflict between the United States and several bands of Dakota Native Americans. It began along the Minnesota River four years after Minnesota was admitted as a state.

The remaining 38 were apart of a mass hanging on December 26 that same year. It was the largest mass execution in United States history.
