Images of the Past

Swords & Plowshares - South Dakota & the Civil War

Season 8 Episode 7 | 56m 45s  | Video has closed captioning.

Thousands of Civil War veterans came to South Dakota after the war. Many of them had been wounded, and a far-higher-than-normal percentage of them had experienced multiple battles and, probably, combat trauma. Some came to live life quietly, others helped create the institutions of government, industry, and civic life that define the character of South Dakota to this day.
