Colonel Leavenworth came back the next year and picked up 800 Yankton Sioux warriors that were more than happy to go and kick so Arikara azz. They put the hurt and em and captured the village only to have the Arikara escape at night.
It was awhile ago that I read in the Forum or the Wahpeton paper that it was in the Prohibition Days that a group of people came to Wyndmere from Fargo and wrecked a whole bunch of "BLIND PIGS" which were old buildings where locals drank beer and booze. They beat up who ever they caught there and really did tear some of the buildings down to the ground and burnt them. Thought this was quite funny now knowing Fargo is a boozing capital now. Times change. LB
