It Happened in South Dakota : Remarkable Events That Shaped History
From the early explorations of the La Verendrye brothers to the filming of Dances with Wolves, It Happened in South Dakota takes you on a behind-the-scenes tour of thirty compelling episodes from the vibrant history of the Mount Rushmore State.
Learn how a young lawyer named John Blair Smith Todd successfully lobbied the United States Congress and his cousin-in-law, Abraham Lincoln, to create the Dakota Territory on March 2, 1861. Be blown away by the story of the first-ever photograph of a tornado--an image that inspired reporter Frank Baum to write The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Read about the death of Sitting Bull, the Massacre at Wounded Knee, and the massive monument to Crazy Horse whose construction began in 1948--and is still underway.
