Friday, Dec. 26, 1862

This is the day appointed for the execution of the condemned Sioux.  300 were sentenced.  The president pardons the rest.  More than one thousand whites were massacred and many more maimed for life.  I am afraid the trouble is not yet over.

Peggy's comments:
Julia refers to the Sioux who were captured after the Indian uprising in Minnesota in August.
