jul 3, 1863 - End of the Sioux Uprising
Little Crow leaves the area. Eventually he returns to steal horses and supplies so he, and his followers can survive. On this day, near Hutchinson, Minnesota, Little Crow and his son stop to pick some berries. Minnesota has recently enacted a law which pays a bounty of $25 for every Sioux scalp. Some settlers see Little Crow, and they open fire. Little Crow will be mortally wounded. His killer would get a bonus bounty of 500 dollars. Little Crow’s scalp would go on public display in St.Paul. Little Crow’s son, Wowinapa, escapes, but is later captured in Dakota Territory.
