Commemorating Controversy: The U.S.-Dakota War of 1862 Speaker Series
January 24, 2012 at 4–5:30 pm[1h 30m]
Researcher and author Corinne Monjeau-Marz has devoted her latest efforts to exploring the extraordinarily challenging and culturally catastrophic transition the Dakota people experienced during the time of early European settlement in Minnesota. Marz will share her recent research and discuss her work on "Alexander Ramsey's Words of War” from the first issue of Minnesota's Heritage magazine. She will also discuss her book, The Dakota Indian Internment at Fort Snelling, 1862-1864, as well as her contributions to Trail of Tears: Minnesota's Dakota Indian Exile Begins.
Monjeau-Marz will be speaking as a part of the Commemorating Controversy: The U.S.-Dakota War of 1862 Speaker Series taught by Elizabeth Baer in the English Department and Ben Leonard of the Nicollet County Historical Society. This Speaker Series was made possibly by a Gustavus Adolphus College Sesquicentennial Mini-Grant.
