A park in Mankato, MN across the street from where 38 Dakota men were hung in the largest mass execution in US history. The park was dedicated in 1997 in commemoration of these 38 men. It originally featured a large concrete buffalo, a rock and a sign. In 2012, on the 150th anniversary, a dedication and memorial, that involved calling for healing and forgiving. Also added to the park,  was a sign with the names of the Dakota 38.
    Across the street on the actual site of the execution there is a statue entitled "Winter Warrior" visible from the park.

Address:
100 S. Riverfront Drive, Mankato, MN 56001
