Charles E. Flandrau And The Defense Of New Ulm.

by Russell W., Et Al. (Editor) Fridley

Cloth, 62pp., numerous illustrations, many from old photos. Map on end paper + 2 maps of the Battle of New Ulm. A well-edited account of the famous Sioux Uprising of 1862, with primary emphasis on the attacks made by 600 Sioux warriors on the little town of New Ulm. The highlight is Flandrau's personal account of the fierce fighting and tactics used in the successful defense by the greatly outnumbered citizens. Fine copy. Dust jacket lightly rubbed with several short closed tears to top edge and a couple of chips and closed tear to lower edge.
