38 Dakota men were hanged at Mankato, December 26, 1862




"The trials of the Dakota were conducted unfairly in a variety of ways. The evidence was sparse, the tribunal was biased, the defendants were unrepresented in unfamiliar proceedings conducted in a foreign language, and authority for convening the tribunal was lacking. More fundamentally, neither the Military Commission nor the reviewing authorities recognized that they were dealing with the aftermath of a war fought with a sovereign nation and that the men who surrendered were entitled to treatment in accordance with that status."
Carol Chomsky, Associate Professor, University of Minnesota Law School
On September 28, 1862, two days after the surrender at Camp Release, a commission of military officers established by Henry Sibley began trying Dakota men accused of participating in the war. Several weeks later the trials were moved to the Lower Agency, where they were held in one of the only buildings left standing, trader François LaBathe’s summer kitchen.



As weeks passed, cases were handled with increasing speed. On November 5, the commission completed its work. 392 prisoners were tried, 303 were sentenced to death, and 16 were given prison terms.
President Lincoln and government lawyers then reviewed the trial transcripts of all 303 men. As Lincoln would later explain to the U.S. Senate:  
"Anxious to not act with so much clemency as to encourage another outbreak on one hand, nor with so much severity as to be real cruelty on the other, I ordered a careful examination of the records of the trials to be made, in view of first ordering the execution of such as had been proved guilty of violating females."
When only two men were found guilty of rape, Lincoln expanded the criteria to include those who had participated in “massacres” of civilians rather than just “battles.” He then made his final decision, and forwarded a list of 39 names to Sibley.
On December 26, 1862, 38 Dakota men were hanged at Mankato.
At 10:00 am on December 26, 38 Dakota prisoners were led to a scaffold specially constructed for their execution. One had been given a reprieve at the last minute. An estimated 4,000 spectators crammed the streets of Mankato and surrounding land. Col. Stephen Miller, charged with keeping the peace in the days leading up to the hangings, had declared martial law and had banned the sale and consumption of alcohol within a ten-mile radius of the town.



As the men took their assigned places on the scaffold, they sang a Dakota song as white muslin coverings were pulled over their faces. Drumbeats signalled the start of the execution. The men grasped each others’ hands. With a single blow from an ax, the rope that held the platform was cut. Capt. William Duley, who had lost several members of his family in the attack on the Lake Shetek settlement, cut the rope. 
After dangling from the scaffold for a half hour, the men’s bodies were cut down and hauled to a shallow mass grave on a sandbar between Mankato’s main street and the Minnesota River. Before morning, most of the bodies had been dug up and taken by physicians for use as medical cadavers.
Following the mass execution on December 26, it was discovered that two men had been mistakenly hanged. Wicaƞḣpi Wastedaƞpi (We-chank-wash-ta-don-pee), who went by the common name of Caske (meaning first-born son), reportedly stepped forward when the name “Caske” was called, and was then separated for execution from the other prisoners. The other, Wasicuƞ, was a young white man who had been adopted by the Dakota at an early age. Wasicuƞ had been acquitted.
Letter from Hdainyanka to Chief Wabasha written shortly before his execution:
"You have deceived me.  You told me that if we followed the advice of General Sibley, and gave ourselves up to the whites, all would be well; no innocent man would be injured.  I have not killed, wounded or injured a white man, or any white persons.  I have not participated in the plunder of their property; and yet to-day I am set apart for execution, and must die in a few days, while men who are guilty will remain in prison.  My wife is your daughter, my children are your grandchildren.  I leave them all in your care and under your protection.  Do not let them suffer; and when my children are grown up, let them know that their father died because he followed the advice of his chief, and without having the blood of a white man to answer for to the Great Spirit."

Native Occupation of Ohio River Lands, pre 1720 by Scott Preston Collins



Compiled by:
Pecan:
 From the Colorado University Siouan List, Dave Costa states,
“The term <acansa> got borrowed into Illinois early on as what appears to be a cover term for all the Dhegiha tribes. By the mid-19th century, kaansa is the Miami-Illinois term just for the Kansa tribe, and there are other terms for the Quapaw, Osage, etc. And yes, Bob is right, very early on, Illinois acquired a term essentially meaning 'Kansa/Dhegiha nut' as their word for 'pecan'; in LeBoullenger's circa-1720 Illinois dictionary, this appears as <acansipacane>, while Pinet's Illinois dictionary from 20 years before gives the plural <acansepacana>. By the late 19th century, this variably appears in Miami and Peoria as kaansa pakaani or kaanseeseemini. Shawnee has similar kaa0eemi 'pecan' ('0' = theta), which was later borrowed by Unami Delaware as ká•se•m (some speakers changed this to ká•nse•m).”

“And finally, the Miami-Illinois name for the Ohio River is literally 'the Kansa/Dhegiga River'; the most common variant seen is kaanseeseepiiwi. Shawnee also has this, as kaa0eewi0iipi.”

“I've assumed for a long time that what this means is that Miami-Illinois speakers and Shawnee speakers first encountered Dhegiha-speakers on the Ohio River, presumably in southern Ohio or maybe southern Indiana, at a time when they weren't seperated into their modern divisions yet, and when something sounding like /kaansa/ was their name for themselves. I also assume this is when the Algonquians first encountered pecans, or at least when they first encountered them in big numbers.”
Robert Myers from the same list states; “Thought I might share this if you haven't already seen it. This account is the earliest I've found recounting an Ohio River origin of Missouri River Siouan tribes. Written by James MacKay sometime between 1797 and 1822 but based on his 1797 trip up the Missouri River to trade with these peoples.”

"The Osage, Mahas, Poncara, Panies, & Ricara Tribes who lives on the Missouri & its Southern waters are the decendants of one nation or people who in Some Past ages lived on the River Ohio & tho time & Circumstances Separated them & brought the Language of each to differ much yet they understand each other So as to transact all business of small importance without Interpreters & they still Claim Kindred though they Sometimes Quarrel"

“…in: Charles E. Orser, Jr., "The Explorer as Ethnologist: James Mackay's 'Indian Tribes' Manuscript with a Test of His Comments on the Native Mortuary Customs of the Trans-Mississippi West, " Ethnohistory, Vol. 30, No. 1 (Winter, 1983): 15-33.

An interesting twist to this story is the statement that the Pawnee and Arikara were related to the Siouans. This is similar to the general migration story below published by Rev. J. Owen Dorsey in American Naturalist, Vol. 20, No. 3 (March 1886).”

"Since 1879 the writer has gained more definite information from other Ponkas, as well as from Omahas, Osages and Kansas, and it is now given. Ages ago the ancestors of the Omahas, Ponkas, Osages, Kansas, Kwapas, Winnebagos, Pawnee Loups (Skidi) and Rees, dwelt east of the Mississippi. They were not all in one region, but they were allies, and their general course was westward. They drove other tribes before them. Five of these peoples, the Omahas, Ponkas, Osages, Kansas and Kwapas, were then together as one nation. They were called Arkansa or Alkansa by the Illinois tribes, and they dwelt near the Ohio river. At the mouth of the Ohio a separation occurred. ..."

By New York State Historical Associationhttp://books.google.com/books?id=0TmYlrp7AZcC&pg=RA1-PA7&dq=Saponican&hl=en&ei=gx9eTbqrGZTpgAeptKTrDQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&sqi=2&ved=0CCcQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=Saponican&f=false

Saponickan and Sapohanican are the earliest forms of a name which appears later Sappokanican, Sappokanikke, Saponican, Shaw-backanica, Taponkanico, etc. “ A piece of land bounded on the north by the strand road, called Saponickan” (1629); “Tobacco plantation near Sapohanican” (1639); “Plantation situate against the Reed Valley beyond Sappokanican” (1640). Wouter van Twiller purchased the tract, in 1629, for the use of the Dutch government and established thereon a tobacco plantation, with buildings enclosed in palisade, which subsequently became known as “the little village of Sapokanican--- Sappokanican--- Van der Donck--- and later (1721) as Greenwich Village. It occupied very nearly the site of the present Gansevort market. The “Strand road” is now Greenwich Street. It was primarily, an Indian path along the shore of the river north, with branches to Harlem and other points, the main path continuing the trunk-path through Raritan Valley, but locally beginning at the ‘crossing-place’ or as the record reads, “Where the Indians cross [the Hudson] to bring their pelteries.” “South of Van Twiller's plantation was a marsh much affected by wild fowl, and a bright, quick brook, called by the Dutch ‘Bestavar's Kil’, and by the English ‘Manetta Water.’”( Half-Moon Series.) Saponickan was in place here when Van Twiller made his purchase (1629), as the record shows, and was adopted by him as the name of his settlement. To what feature it referred cannot be positively stated, but apparently to the Reed Valley or marsh. It has had several interpretations, but none that are satisfactory. The syllable pon may denote a bulbous root which was found there. (See Passapenoc.) The same name is probably met in Saphorakam, or Saphonakan, given as the name of a tract described as “Marsh and canebrake,” lying near or on the shore of Gowanus Bay, Brooklyn. (See Kanonnewage, in connection with Manhattan.)
Also see the following as to the name:
“Four dayes Journey from your forte Southerward is a town called Ononahorne, seated where the river Choanock divideth itself into three branches and falleth into the sea of Rawnocke in thirty five degrees. If you make your principall and choise seate you shall doe most safely and richly because you are in the heart of Lands open to the south and two of the best rivers will supply you, besides you are neare to with Copper mines of Ritane and may passe them by one branch of the river, and by another Peccareca- micke where you shall finde four of the Englishe alsoe, lost by Sir Walter Raweley, which escaped from the slaughter of Powhatan of Roanocke upon the first arivall of our Colony and live under the protection of a wiroano call’d Sepanocan enemy to Powhatan, by whose consent you shall never receive them, one of these were worth much laboar and if you finde them not, yet search into this contrey it is more probable than towardes the North.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monetons
The Susquehannocks are first mentioned in the Voyages of Samuel Champlain for 1615, and he calls one of their some twenty villages "Carantouan". Carantouan was close to the New York and Pennsylvania border on the tributaries of the Susquehanna River on his map approaching towards the region from the Saint Lawrence Seaway.[15] Grant County, West Virginia, Hampshire County, West Virginia and Hardy County, West Virginia and Allegany County, Maryland[16] possess archaeological sites having Susquehannock Ceramics. A Susquehanna site is also located at Moorefield, West Virginia.

Was Carantouan located in Bradford County, PA? and Broom County, NY?

[Hiram Hogg Letter #1]
Note: Possible motivation for the murder of 49 year old Briant Collins by Caudill's men may have been the fact that two of his sons, Jesse and Fielding Collins, were members of the 14th KY Cavalry [US]. On the other hand, a third son, Carter Collins, was a member of Co. H, 13th KY Cavalry [CS].

Notes for CARTER W. COLLINS:
Morgan County marriage records show that Carter W. Collins, age 19, of Morgan County, born in Letcher County and Mary Roberson, age 16, of Morgan County, born Morgan County were married on June 28, 1855.  Witnesses were M.J. Amyx and A.B. Nickell.

The 1860 Letcher County, Ky Federal Census listed Carter, age 23; Mary, age 24; William, age 4; and Bryant, age 9/12 years.  The 1870 Census also showed the family still living in Letcher County.  The 1880 Census showed the family living in Morgan County, Ky.  Since the two older sons were married in Morgan County in 1876, the family must have moved some time between 1870 and 1876.  The 1879 Kentucky State Gazetteer showed C. W. Collins as a justice of the peace for the Yocum community in northwest Morgan County.
 
During the Civil War, Carter apparently enlisted as a private in Company H, 13th Kentucky Cavalry(Confederate).  Records indicated that he deserted this unit by Nov. 2, 1862. i.e.( Briant murdered Nov. 1862)   The 1890 Veterans Census of Rowan Co., Ky showed that Carter had enlisted in the 10th Kentucky Cavalry(Union) and served between 1862 and 1863 when the unit was disbanded.  Former Confederate soldiers who switched sides and joined the Union army were sometimes called "galvanized Yankees."

Carter served as a Justice of the Peace in Morgan Co. for at least one term during the period of 1878-1883.  The 1879 Kentucky State Gazetteer listed C.W. Collins as the Justice for the community of Yocum (later Blaze), Morgan Co., Ky.

In 1900, Carter and Mary were living in the Morehead precinct, Rowan Co., Ky (1900 Federal Census).

Notes for MARY ROBINSON:
On her death certificate, her father's name is recorded as William Robinson.  Both her and her father's birthplace is noted as Morgan County, Ky.  This information is not correct.  No name is reported for her mother.

The 1900 Rowan Co., Ky Federal Census states that Mary had given birth to 6 children and that all 6 were still living.

Notes for CARTER W. COLLINS:
Morgan County marriage records show that Carter W. Collins, age 19, of Morgan County, born in Letcher County and Mary Roberson, age 16, of Morgan County, born Morgan County were married on June 28, 1855.  Witnesses were M.J. Amyx and A.B. Nickell.

The 1860 Letcher County, Ky Federal Census listed Carter, age 23; Mary, age 24; William, age 4; and Briant, age 9/12 years.  The 1870 Census also showed the family still living in Letcher County.  The 1880 Census showed the family living in Morgan County, Ky.  Since the two older sons were married in Morgan County in 1876, the family must have moved some time between 1870 and 1876.  The 1879 Kentucky State Gazetteer showed C. W. Collins as a justice of the peace for the Yocum community in northwest Morgan County.
 
During the Civil War, Carter apparently enlisted as a private in Company H, 13th Kentucky Cavalry(Confederate).  Records indicated that he deserted this unit by Nov. 2, 1862. i.e.( Bryant murdered Nov. 1862)   The 1890 Veterans Census of Rowan Co., Ky showed that Carter had enlisted in the 10th Kentucky Cavalry(Union) and served between 1862 and 1863 when the unit was disbanded.  Former Confederate soldiers who switched sides and joined the Union army were sometimes called "galvanized Yankees."

Carter served as a Justice of the Peace in Morgan Co. for at least one term during the period of 1878-1883.  The 1879 Kentucky State Gazetteer listed C.W. Collins as the Justice for the community of Yocum (later Blaze), Morgan Co., Ky.

In 1900, Carter and Mary were living in the Morehead precinct, Rowan Co., Ky (1900 Federal Census).

Notes for MARY ROBINSON:
On her death certificate, her father's name is recorded as William Robinson.  Both her and her father's birthplace is noted as Morgan County, Ky.  This information is not correct.  No name is reported for her mother.

The 1900 Rowan Co., Ky Federal Census states that Mary had given birth to 6 children and that all 6 were still living.

       iv.  BERDINE COLLINS, b. Abt. 1863, Letcher Co., Ky.

Notes for BERDINE COLLINS:
This person is listed on the 1870 Letcher Co., Ky Federal Census but is not listed on the 1880 Morgan Co., Ky Federal Census.  No record of his death has been found. 

The 1900 census shows that Mary Robinson Collins had given birth to 6 children and all were still living.  Was the name Berdine a mistake on the part of the censustaker in 1870 or was his name later changed to Fielden?

(edit note: the 1910 Federal census clearly shows Field B. Collins. Berdine is a name that runs through our Collins family. this editor strongly suggests that Burdine is the same individual as Field B. Collins.
