History Revealed: Fort Snelling Daily Lives

August 9, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Ramsey County Historical Society Presents

Stephen Osman, Fort Snelling & the Civil War: Daily Lives

History Revealed: A Toast to History at Waldmann Series
Thursday, August 9, 2018
Waldmann Brewery & Wurstery

Free and open to all.

Join RCHS for History Revealed, our program series featuring presentations and tours from the best of local historians, authors and archaeologists, with a wide range of topics drawn from the heritage and traditions of Ramsey County.

One hundred fifty years ago our state offered the first volunteers to defend the Union. Every Minnesota soldier passed through historic Fort Snelling, reactivated after it had been sold to a developer. The Fort eventually expanded to include several large camps of Native Americans, massive stock yards, huge warehouses, and secure barracks for draftees before reverting to a supply depot in 1865.

Stephen Osman will share some of the letters, stories and daily lives of the soldiers and civilians who lived, worked, and fought at Fort Snelling during the Civil War and the Dakota Conflict. The challenges faced by these young men, many of whom had never been more than a few miles away from their out-state family farms before, were daunting. And the Fort was not always in suitable shape to hold the vast influx of arriving recruits. Stephen will share these challenges and show images from his new book, Fort Snelling and the Civil War, published by RCHS. Books will be available for signing and for purchase.

Stephen Osman managed Historic Fort Snelling for over three decades and actively researches, speaks and writes about Minnesota’s role in the Civil War and the U.S. Dakota War of 1862. Osman served with the US Army Reserve in Psychological Operations at Fort Snelling, and has served on the boards of the Minnesota Military Museum, the Friends of Fort Snelling, the Twin Cities Civil War Roundtable.

Registration is needed to attend presentations. Space is limited, first-come, first served.
