Fort Ridgely, August 16, 1pm program and 2:30pm battlefield tour

The causes of the U.S. Dakota War in 1862 were many and complicated. Independent Historian John LaBatte will examine these. At least nine of John’s Dakota and white ancestors were involved in the U.S. Dakota War of 1862. 

The New Ulm Battery will be here to assist John in his Battlefield Tour to give visitors a feeling of what it would have been like to hear canon fire on the parade grounds.

Dan Cochran will be there to demonstrate and sell his handmade leather work.

Join John LaBatte, the New Ulm Battery and Dan Cochran for the 1pm program and again for the 2:30pm battlefield tour.
