The following is a longer version of a paper presented at the Northern Great Plains History Conference 2018, held this year in Mankato Minnesota. My paper was part of a panel:
Monuments and Memory
Blue Earth County Library Auditorium
Chair: Greg Kaster, Gustavus Adolphus College
From Mankato to New Ulm:
The Issues of Public Memory and the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862
John Legg, Virginia Tech
Minnesota’s Columbus Memorial:
Race, Memory, and Colonialism on the State Capitol Grounds
Peter DeCarlo, Minnesota Historical Society
Historians Respond to Contested History
Kellian Clink, Minnesota State University, Mankato
Panelists are limited to 20 minutes, so those comments were briefer and less contextualized than the following.
