1. The Pioneers of Brown County Monument
Inscription.
  To pay homage to the sturdy pioneers who founded the territory of Minnesota a century ago. And to express veneration for the pioneers of Brown County and members of their families who lost their lives during the Sioux War of 1862 — 1863. This memorial is reverently dedicated by the Brown County Historical Society this 7th day of October, in Minnesota's Territorial Centennial, A.D., 1949. On this day in October 1854, the first white settlers arrived in New Ulm.
——————
  May the present generation and those to come consider the debt they owe to those worthy pioneers and emulate their fortitude in preserving democratic principles in this nation.

Regarding The Pioneers of Brown County Monument. In August 1862, the Minnesota Dakota, also known by the French term, “Sioux," waged war against the United States following two years of unfulfilled treaty obligations. After attacking the Redwood (Lower Sioux) Agency, a remote government outpost, the Dakota moved with speed and surprise across southwestern Minnesota and what was then eastern Dakota Territory, killing nearly everyone in their path. They killed approximately 800 settlers and soldiers, took many prisoners, and caused extensive property damage throughout the Minnesota River Valley.
