First Edition. Disbound. 2pp. 36th Congress, 1st Session. House. Mis. Doc. No. 69. Urges the construction of a military post or fort at the United States & Canadian border to protect against hostilities by Sioux Indians. "The legislature of the State of Minnesota respectfully urges the construction and occupation of a military post near the international boundary, at some point in the valley of the Pembina River which is best adapted to protect the settlers on the American side of the border, as well as the English settlements at Selkirk, from the aggressions of the Sioux Indians who occupy the plains between the Red River of the North and the Missouri River. Pembina mountain, near the Mission and village of St. Joseph, and thirty miles west of the junction of the Pembina and Red rivers, is a favorable site, and is recommended to the attention of Congress."
