9780878397167: Malice Toward None: Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War, the Homestead Act, and the Massacre --and Heartening Survival--of the Kochendorfers

A gravestone inscription leads the author on a search through early Minnesota history, and then U.S. and Civil War history. He discovers that four siblings orphaned by the Dakota War commissioned that inscription in memory of their parents and younger sister, and that their many descendants now live all around him. Those quiet descendants have kept many wonderful family records, and in those letters and photographs he learns that those four brave orphans lived lives of tolerance and gratitude, lives that answered President Lincoln's hopes in that Second Inaugural Address.

About the Author:

Daniel C. Munson is a chemical engineer and student of scientific and financial history. He has published professional journal articles as well as a half-dozen articles connecting art and literature with financial history in Barron's Financial Weekly and other publications. Malice Toward None is his first book of history. He lives with his wife and sons in Maplewood, Minnesota.

Review:

"This book is a personal account of one courageous family's story and one determined man's experience of finding the history of the Kochendorfers and how Johan (age 38), Catherine (36), and Sarah (3) came to be buried so far from Redwood Falls in southwestern Minnesota. [. . .] Malice Toward None is a fascinating and heart-warming book about four orphaned children that carries a message of forgiveness and charity that is truly timeless." --John Lindley, Ramsey County Historical Society and editor, Ramsey County History magazine.

"One of the most detailed explanations of events leading up to the Dakota Uprising that I've ever read . . . An excellent history book that also deals with the impact of major events on one family." --Bob Jensen, Maplewood Area Historical Society President

"This is a personal story of both the past and the present, as Munson recounts how an evocative gravestone inscription led him to the compelling history of the life and times of the Kochendorfer family . . . This is not a bare-bones account, but rather a rich portrait of the lives of four brave orphans, supported and filled in by original authentic letters and photographs preserved by their descendants." --Sarah Bell, Hennepin History Museum


"I was really impressed with [the] writing. Excellent work." --Jeff Williamson, Bloomington Historical Society and the Pond-Dakota Heritage Society
