Sound of bells

A Closer Look

Bishop Henry Whipple described how he notified the people in Faribault of the attacks on the Lower Sioux Indian Agency in 1862:

“I was in St. Paul when news of the outbreak came. At the request of General Sibley I rode all night to Faribault to ask Alexander Faribault to join him with a company [of men] at St. Peter. I reached Faribault at sunrise, and at once sent a boy ringing a bell through the streets, with a message to the citizens to meet me in front of the hotel.”
