Gustav Niebuhr on Lincoln, Henry Whipple, and the Dakota War

John Fea’s blog has an interesting interview with Gustav Niebuhr, author of the new book Lincoln’s Bishop: A President, a Priest, and the Fate of 300 Dakota Sioux.  The book examines Bishop Henry Whipple’s work to reform America’s Indian relations and his influence on Lincoln’s response to the Dakota War of 1862.
