    Author Gary Wiltscheck will discuss his book "The Leavenworth Rescue Expedition Revisited" which is an account of how a rescue party risked their lives during the Dakota War of 1862 to try to rescue families and neighbors along the Big Cottonwood River only to return empty handed and placing themselves in peril. He will discuss the settlers ordeal including the deaths of six wagon parties of refugees as they tried to defend New Ulm. The book will also be available.
