Wood Lake Battlefield to be dedicated
WOOD LAKE BATTLEFIELD -- Since 1910, a one-acre site with a monument has been all that marked the final battle of the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862, and it is in the wrong location.
The fenced site is located where Col. Henry Sibley camped, but not where the Battle of Wood Lake took place on Sept. 23, 1862.
