Minnesota and the Civil War

Residents March 1, 2013
The Civil War holds a pivotal place in the history of the United States. Citizens of the new state of Minnesota were a major part of the national story, from being the first state to offer troops through their dramatic role at Gettysburg to Appomattox and beyond. To commemorate the sesquicentennial of these events, the Minnesota Historical Society is offering a broad range of programs, publications and online content from now through 2015.
Visit the Minnesota History Museum Website for more information on this exhibit that starts on March 2nd, 2013
