The Battle of Sugar Point

Clip: Season 1999 Episode 6 | 4m 39s | Video has closed captioning.

100 years ago this month near Leech Lake there was a fight between the U.S. Army and Ojibway in what some call America's last Indian war. It's a complicated story about bootlegging, over-zealous federal marshalls and a racist America. Dave Wiggins with the Minnesota Historical Society pays us another visit to tell us what happened.
