This winter, we will offer a great lineup of classes in conjunction with Red Wing Community Education! To register for this class, please call Community Education at 651.385.4565.
Minnesota, barely three years old at the time of the Civil War, was the first state to respond to President Abraham Lincoln’s request for volunteer regiments. Find out how important Minnesota’s role was to the Union cause. Doug Ohman has journeyed across our state finding graves and remembering those who served in this tragic, but most interesting, chapter in American history. A gifted storyteller and photographer, Doug’s photography and his historical perspective have been featured in numerous newspapers, magazines, and books.

This evening program will take place at Red Wing High School, enter the building through door #40.
