Minnesota Civil War Commemoration Task Force
The Minnesota Civil War Commemoration Task Force is taking a look back on the Civil War during this prominent anniversary.
While the nation is marking the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, Minnesota leaders are remembering the role our state played in the Civil War.
A Minnesota soldier killed in battle during the Civil War will have a special ceremony in his honor 150 years later. Secretary of State Mark Ritchie and members of the Minnesota Civil War Commemoration Task Force planned to hold a grave rededication ceremony for Lt. David Oakes at a St. Paul cemetery as part of Monday’s Memorial Day observance.
