The Dakota War of 1862 was the single most important event in our state's 150-year history. In six tragic weeks more were killed than all of Minnesota's Civil War deaths and the western half of the state was depopulated. Panelists will explore with the audience the known facts of the war, what happened at various stages and how the war was docu- mented, and will discuss the ques- tions still unanswered about this tumultuous time period from August to December 1862. Forum presenters are Stephen E. Osman, military historian and long- time site manager at Historic Fort Snelling, whose slide presentation documents the causes and events of the war; Curtis A. Dahlin, an inde- pendent scholar, author and photo- graph historian whose focus is on the fate of those caught up in the war; and Mary H. Bakeman, histori- cal researcher, publisher, and editor of Minnesota's Heritage history journal. The event takes place in the first floor Community Room and is free and open to the public. It will be pre- ceded by the annual meeting of the Joseph R. Brown Heritage Society at 12:30 pm. The Joseph R. Brown Minnesota River Center on second floor will be open from 10 am to 12:30 pm. Future forums are planned for Brown Heritage Society annual meetings in 2011 and 2012, focusing on events leading up to the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862 and the legacy of that war - how those events affected both the Dakota and the settlers. Public participation in these forums is encouraged. Calling all farmers-- Farm land rent Farm land rent is of critical con- cern to landowners and operators.
