About this Item

La Crosse. 1965. Sumac Press. 1 of 500 Copies. Fine In Hardcover. 60. hardcover. keywords:. inventory # 14532. FROM THE PUBLISHER - From the introduction by Theodore C. Blegen – In 1862, on the eve of the Sioux War, President Lincoln sent his private secretary, John G. Nicolay, to Minnesota with instructions to meet William P. Dole, United States Commissioner of Indian Affairs, and to be an observer and perhaps assist the Commissioner in the negotiation of a land-cession treaty with the Pembina and Red Lake bands of Chippewa Indians. The purpose of the expedition was to acquire for the United States full rights to the rich Red River Valley — the area north of the Sioux-Chippewa boundary line of 1825, south of the British possessions, and on both sides of the Red River. The enterprise was a sequel to Governor Alexander Ramsey’s Pembina treaty of 1851, which the United States Senate rejected in 1852. At the same time, because of special circumstances, it was a prologue to the Old Crossing Treaty of 1863. This was duly negotiated, but was much revised and in fact virtually replaced by a treaty in 1864, which the Senate ratified on April 12 of that year.’. Bookseller Inventory # 14532
