Description
The author of Beyond Tolerance: Searching for Interfaith Understanding in America here profiles an Episcopal bishop who championed the cause of Native Americans in the later 19th century, appealing to President Lincoln to show mercy toward hundreds of Sioux men condemned to death by a military tribunal. Though he'd never met an Indian until he was 37 years old, Henry Benjamin Whipple had befriended many of them before they began to attack pioneering families in the 1862 Dakota Uprising, and understood their plight at the hands of corrupt government officials and businessmen. His counsel led to Lincoln's reviewing the cases individually and pardoning 265 men, though another 38 were hanged on December 26, 1862, in the largest mass execution ever performed by the United States.
