The Dakota 38 Plus 2 Reconciliation Ride from Lower Brule to Mankato, Minn., commemorates events from 1862. The riders started in Lower Brule Tuesday morning and headed to Fort Thompson, where they planned to stay the night and then embark for Wessington Springs Wednesday. The ride will end Dec. 26 in Mankato, where 38 Dakota men were hanged on that same date in 1862 as a result of the Dakota War. Two others who escaped were later caught and hanged in 1865. The ride's aim is to foster healing and reconciliation.
