Our Next CMCWRT Meeting

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Time: 7:00pm

Guest Speaker: Stephen Osman

Fort Snelling and the Civil War

March Meeting

Guest Speakers: Neil Simonson
Topic: Island No. 10

In March and April of 1862 the Union Army and Navy launched a campaign to capture Island #10 of the Mississippi River, the tenth Island south of Cairo, Illinois, hoping to open up the entire Mississippi for Union control. The successful operation catapulted John Pope to national fame, propelling him to command at Second Manassas. But the ignominious defeat relegated him to Minnesota and the remnants of the Dakota-US War of 1862. Neil Simonson will outline the geography, routes and personalities connected with the battle.

The Central Minnesota Civil War Roundtable, was formed in April 2007 in St. Cloud, MN. We meet monthly during the school year to discuss various aspects of the Civil War. Most meetings feature a speaker and a question-and-answer session.
