Press release submitted by Bettendorf Public Library.

BETTENDORF -- A presentation by Sara James-Childers commemorating the 150th anniversary of the year that Dakota Native Americans from Minnesota were exiled from their homelands and sent to Davenport's Camp McClellan Stockad, will be 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 9, at Bettendorf Public Library.

James-Childers, who has researched the history of the Dakota for the past 25 years, will talk about what life was like for those imprisoned at Camp McClellan, what happened to them when they died (as over 100 did), and where they were sent when they were released in May 1866.

This program is in partnership with the Scott County Historic Preservation Society and Rock Island Arsenal Historical Society.
