Dakota Territory's Historic Forts

Mitchell, SD

Omaha author Jeff Barnes introduces "The Forts of Dakota". Beginning at 7pm, the 45-minute talk will cover ten of the terrritory's military posts, covering 150 years of Dakota history. "The Dakota forts rank among the most important in the history of the great plains, and all with histories tied to the Lakota Sioux nation," said Barnes. His powerpoint presentation includes a brief history of the posts, seldom heard tales, and many rarely seen historic images and maps. Barnes is the author of "Forts of the Northern Plains: Guide to Historic Military Posts of the Plains Indian Wars", available for purchase and signing after his presentation. Barnes believes that it is quite possible he is the only person to have visited all of these sites.
