From the "History of Scott County."
An excursion party from Fort Snelling went up the Minnesota by steamboat to Shakopee's village in June 1842, and in 1850 three boats carried excursions upstream and "demonstrated the navigability of the Minnesota River". By 1854, the number of steamboat arrivals and departures at St. Paul from the Minnesota River, reached the hundred mark. Almost four times that number were recorded in 1858.The greater part of southern Minnesota was opened to settlement by treaties with the Sioux Indian signed at Mendota and at Traverse des Sioux (near St. Peter), in 1851 and proclaimed by President Millard Fillmore in 1853. The Indians were moved to a reservation on the upper river. Many of them continued to return to their old hunting grounds during the summer months. About 150 members of Shakopee's band were camped near the village that bears his name in May 1858 when they were attacked by hostile Chippewa. A bloody battle followed, and the Chippewa finally retreated, leaving for their homes to the north. This was the last of a long series of conflicts between the two great Indian tribes of Minnesota.
The area of Scott County was not involved in the Great Sioux Outbreak of 1862. One of the leaders of the Indians was Little Six, who had become chief of the band in 1860. This chief and Medicine Bottle, were captured by John McKenzie, and hanged at Fort Snelling in 1863 for the murder of Philander Prescott during the outbreak."

And this: "Description - In May of 1858 Ojibwa from the Mille Lacs area came down the Rum River, left their canoes at Coon Creek Rapids, and went overland down the Indian trail to the Dakota Village in Shakopee. A fierce battle followed on May 29, 1858. This was the last major battle between these tribes. (Hoisington, Daniel. p. 36)
Back in those days, I guess no one stopped to tell the Tribe they were attacking, just what brand of NDN was attacking them and the wasicu could care less. The more the people were killed, the more land for the wasicu. HMMMM, there is something not right about that.
