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.
