In 1861 Rudolf Leonhart accepted a teaching position in the German-American community of New Ulm, Minnesota. Unknowingly, it placed him in the midst of one of the most significant events in American history?the U.S.?Dakota Conflict of 1862. Filled with humor and keen observations, Memories of New Ulm stands as one of the few lengthy descriptions of these events. It gives us an eyewitness account into life on the frontier, the two battles of New Ulm, and the retreat to Mankato. This is its first publication in an English translation. Don Heinrich Tolzmann, one of the nation's leading scholars in German-American history, provides an insightful introduction to his translation of Leonhart's text.
