“INJUNS! INJUNS! INJUNS!” The man screamed at the top of his lungs. Everyone within earshot suddenly stopped at the news. “Injuns attacking! ATTACKING!! Just north of here!”
It was September 3, 1862, in the bustling pioneer town of Sheboygan, Wisconsin. And it all happened so fast: A beautiful early autumn day was turned upside down by a lone horseback rider kicking up dust and spreading chaos, fear, and panic.
By nightfall the town would be an armed fortress filled with terrified and angry defenders. By morning, the last Indian family still camped in the area would be planning to finally move way.
All by the power of a false rumor. All by an attack of ‘Savages in the Mind in Pioneer Sheboygan’.
Based on a true story.
