Annual Civil War Symposium
A Universe of Conflict: 1864
Saturday, April 5, 2014, 9:15 A.M.
Federal armies pushed slowly forward on multiple fronts while a huge mounted expedition swept into the Dakotas. Yet both Confederates and Indian warriors proved resilient foes. Minnesota remained a garrisoned state as its expanding population faced the challenges of full mobilization for war.
This fifth in a series of Civil War Sesquicentennial Symposia is sponsored by the Rochester, St. Croix Valley, Cannon Valley, Central Minnesota, Hiawatha Valley, Minnesota Valley, and Twin Cities Civil War Roundtables in partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society and the Minnesota Civil War Commemorative Task Force.
Fort Snelling History Center is at the junction of Minnesota Highways 5 and 55, one mile east of the International Airport. From Highway 55 take the Bloomington Road exit and follow the brown Historic Site signs to the big parking lot, then walk down the ramp into the Visitor Center.
