We realize there are many families with ties to Brown County and especially to those who lived in the area during 1862.
If you are a family member that is planning a reunion with your relatives during August 2012 please fill out the contact sheet below and we will put your name and email address on the website (bottom of this page) so people can contact you about the reunion. We can also link your name to a family website if that is what you wish.
Please tell us which family (surname) is getting together, we will separate accordingly. Include the date, location time if available.

We are looking for descendants of U.S.-Dakota War victims to gather during the commemoration week to share stories. We are preparing a registry of those ancestors and descendants, whether killed, captured, wounded or escaped.

Militia or Mounted Calvary Regiments
I am currently looking to correspond with friends whose ancestor(s) were in the Militia or Mounted Calvary regiments that fought the Dakota Indians in those early hours and days of the U.S. Dakota War, in and around New Ulm. My great grandfather was one of those soldiers. I am not sure if I will be able to make the commemoration, but would like to discuss these events with someone in like circumstances. - L.
