Making Minnesota Territory, 1849-1858
Making Minnesota Territory, 1849-1858
Paperback      ISBN: 0873513738
In this collection of essays, historians reassess the events and meaning of Minnesota Territory 150 years after its creation. They describe how its birth in 1849 during the growing national conflict over slavery forever changed the lives of Minnesota's native and mixed-blood residents. Reinterpreting the rush to statehood in 1858, these writers offer fresh insights into the roles played by wildly optimistic territorial promoters and the no-holds-barred newspapers of the time. Eight fictional "Day in the Life" essays, as well as nearly 100 historical daguerreotypes, paintings, photographs, and curators'-choice artifacts, call up the sights, sounds and surroundings of ordinary people living in tumultuous territorial times. An essay on surviving buildings and landscapes offers readers the opportunity to see and experience territorial Minnesota today.

Old Rail Fence Corners: Frontier Tales Told by Minnesota Pioneers
Old Rail Fence Corners
Frontier Tales Told by Minnesota Pioneers
Paperback      ISBN: 0873511093
Old Rail Fence Corners is the story of Minnesota's early settlers in their own words—hardship and happiness on the frontier. These simple, direct accounts, collected at the beginning of the twentieth century, paint vivid pictures of life in Minnesota from the 1840s to the 1860s. A new introduction by Marjorie Kreidburg describes the life and times of the book and of Lucy Leavenworth Wilder Morris, its remarkable editor. Praise for Old Rail Fence Corners: "These personal anecdotes are the stuff of social history—the testimony of ordinary, everyday people, which, when pieced together, give us a picture of pioneer life." —Marilyn J. Lass, Minnesota Reviews
