Annual Civil War Symposium
Commemorating the Late Conflict
Saturday, April 2, 2016, 9:15 A.M.
Bullets were still flying when soldiers began to commemorate the most important event in the nationís history. Fraternal organizations like the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, the Grand Army of the Republic, and the United Confederate Veterans eventually numbered over half a million. Generations later, research, publishing, battlefield touring and preservation efforts still fascinate. The Rochester, St. Croix Valley, Cannon Valley, Central Minnesota, Hiawatha Valley, Minnesota Valley, Albert Lea and Twin Cities Civil War Roundtables partner with the Minnesota Historical Society and the Minnesota Civil War Commemorative Task Force to jointly sponsor this Civil War Symposium.
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.
