Dakota Midday: Images Of The Past, Camp Dewey

20160310_205606_745684_campdewey-thumb.jpeg

For this week's Images of the Past, Bill Hoskins, director of Siouxland Heritage Museums, tells the story of Camp Dewey in Sioux Falls. The camp served as a rendezvous for around 1,000 South Dakotans called into action in response to the downing of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor in 1898. How those men ended up ill-prepared for action in the Philippines rounds out the story of a South Dakota military contribution.
