Commemorate the 100th anniversary of America's entry into World War I at Historic Fort Snelling. The "Great War," as WWI was then called, raged for three years before the U.S. entered the conflict in 1917. America's participation tipped the balance in favor of the Allied powers and helped end the war in November 1918.
Explore the ways this conflict shaped the world we know today and learn about Minnesota's role in the war. Visit with costumed interpreters and reenactors, watch military demonstrations, stand in a recreated WWI-style trench and experience what life was like for Minnesotans during this crucial time.
You are cordially invited to join the Friends of Fort Snelling for their Annual Meeting, being held on Sunday, September 10th, at the Historic Fort Snelling Visitor’s Center. This date is significant because it marks the founding of Fort Snelling in 1820.
Our featured keynote presenter is author Stephen Osman. He will discuss the role of Fort Snelling as a major military station in Minnesota during the Civil War, and present his new book, Fort Snelling and the Civil War, released this spring by the Ramsey County Historical Society. Stephen will be available for questions, and to sign books.
Representatives will also be on hand from the Ramsey County Historical Society, Minnesota Historical Society, Fort Snelling State Park, and the Northern Star Council of the Boy Scouts of America to discuss Fort Snelling projects. The annual meeting is an excellent way to meet others who are passionate about Fort Snelling and to learn more about what’s going on throughout the area, I look forward to seeing you there!
Please let us know you’re coming! Register online at www.fortsnelling.org or mail the registration form to 380 Jackson Street, Ste 287, Saint Paul, MN 55101.
