Stories Behind the Photos of the American Civil War
Making the Emancipation Proclamation a Reality
The Emancipation Proclamation is justly remembered as one of the iconic documents of American history, but it took determination, chance, and luck to make it a reality. Disagreements and disputes among anti-slavery Republicans culminated with a battle—the bloodiest day in American history—that assured the Emancipation Proclamation would become reality. Dr. Lund illuminates the winding path that led to the Proclamation.
Minnesotans in the Civil War
Minnesotans at War
Minnesotans have played key roles in nearly every one of United States’ wars since its statehood in 1858. Focusing on the major wars of the twentieth century, Dr. Lund tells the stories of some of those who have served in the armed forces across the globe. From the “Gopher Gunners” on the banks of the Marne to the St. Paul sailors of the USS Ward at Pearl Harbor, Minnesotans have served with distinction throughout the nation’s conflicts.
