HISTORICAL SKETCH

OF

NORTH AND SOUTH DAKOTA

BY

WILLIAM MAXWELL BLACKBURN, D. D., LL. D.

1893

WITH EDITORIAL NOTES

BY

DR. DE LORME W. ROBINSON
AND AN APPRECIATION OF DR. BLACKBURN

BY THOMAS LAWRENCE RIGGS

NOTE BY THE SECRETARY

The persistent effort put forth by Dr. Blackburn, singlehanded, to carry on the work of a state historical society during ten years of the state's history, as well as the fact that he left unpublished an outline history of the Dakotas, makes it, in the estimation of the executive committee, highly proper in this, the first volume of the collections of Dakota history, that his work be recognized by the publication of the subjoined papers; not more, however, to do honor to his memory than for their intrinsic historical worth. Few American historians have written with a broader view, better equipment, or greater honesty.
