Photocopy what you want. Then return it sometime. I stammered my thanks and he was gone. Did you see them? Did you see them?! Those are Mr. Rolls of microfilm MHS does not own.
Obscure old books. Boxes of research files like his captivity collection to peruse and copy at my leisure. But more than simply share information, Alan trained into a generation of novice, impressionable scholars like me that what we do with history is share it. If we are blessed to find something, it may not be meant for us, but because tomorrow we will meet someone who needs that very thing we were given.
Outsiders like Zabelle often remark on how readily we share. If we do, it is because Alan has taught us so well. Not by lecturing. But by modeling how it done.
Alan, we are grateful! You are loved, and missed. My condolences to your family.

Major Brown was a drummer boy at Fort Snelling in , and afterward held official positions in Wisconsin Territory and later had been agent for the Sioux Indians. I admired him for one thing. Like most of the early settlers who came to the country unmarried, he took a wife from the Sioux, but unlike nearly all others, he did not repudiate her when civilization came.
I have it on good authority that such was the custom. And these people were high up in the political and social world. See link below. While traditional Dakota culture was functioning, kinship must have helped protect the rights of Dakota women. The liberties taken by officers and gentlemen before the war paved the way. More than a great mystery, the article is an excellent example of how careful historians evaluate conflicting stories —the stuff of which history is made.

In this narrative, descriptions of cherished belongings destroyed and cooking under conditions of siege stand side by side with letters addressed to Dakota leaders and white officials, signed by Dakota men in the camp. Serving as translator and scribe, Mary Renville wrote out the letters and then included them in the book version of her narrative. These letters reveal an entire web of activity that has been neglected if not ignored by most historical accounts of this war.
