The Dakota War of 1862: Death of a Dream
Pastor Paul Lundborg (former Pastor of Grace Lutheran Church) began his genealogical search upon his retirement in 2006. He quickly came face-to-face with his immigrant Swedish ancestors' tragic involvement in the Dakota Uprising in Minnesota. This afternoon you'll learn more about this little-known chapter in American history, as well as Lundborg's process of discovering rich family materials as he fleshed out this important family story.
He published Death of a Dream in 2012, the 150th anniversary of the Dakota War.
MEMBERS & NON-MEMBERS ARE WELCOME!
Note: For those of you who can't come to the afternoon meeting, Pastor Lundborg will be speaking at Celebration Lutheran Church (801 8th Street NE, East Wenatchee) at 7:00 p.m. the same night (March 9).
