Go if you think it your duty : a Minnesota couple's Civil War letters by James Madison Bowler( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the American Civil War, James Madison Bowler and Elizabeth Caleff Bowler courted, married, became parents, and bought a farm. They attended dances, talked politics, and confided their deepest fears. Because of the war, however, they experienced almost all of these events separately, sharing them through hundreds of letters from 1861 to 1865 while Madison served in the Third Minnesota Volunteer Regiment and Lizzie stayed in Nininger, Minnesota. In four years, they spent only twelve weeks under the same roof." "The couple's separation - during which Madison's regiment was involved in the infamous surrender at Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and the Dakota War of 1862 - challenged their commitment to the war and to each other. Madison was steered by his sense of duty. Lizzie agreed that her husband should enlist, but over the course of four years - and after the birth of their daughter - she increasingly felt that his duty to country should come second to the needs of their family." "These letters provide the Bowlers a space to voice their fear for and frustration with each other, and they now provide readers with a window into one couple's Civil War."--Jacket
Germans in Minnesota by Kathleen Neils Conzen( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Germans are the largest single immigrant group in Minnesota history and perhaps its most invisible. Exploring this paradox, author Kathleen Neils Conzen recounts the struggles and triumphs of the Germans who transformed acres of wilderness into productive farms and brought to America their love of art, music, and sociability. She not only discusses the well-known enclaves in Brown and Stearns Counties but also looks at the smaller communities and the Twin Cities. In recent times, a renewed interest in German heritage can be seen in towns like New Ulm, home to the statue of Hermann the German and Heritagefest, the annual summer ethnic festival."--Jacket

The Mississippi River and its source : a narrative and critical history of the discovery of the river and its headwaters, accompanied by the results of detailed hydrographic and topographic surveys by J. V Brower( Book )

1 edition published in 1893 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of the Collections of the Minnesota Historical Society is devoted to a historical discussion by Jacob Vredenberg Brower (1844-1905) about the source and headwaters of the Mississippi River, combined with his extensive hydrographic and topographic surveys. Brower summarizes the major European and white American exploratory trips to the area. Based on a scientific survey of the Itasca Basin that he made under the authority of the Minnesota Historical Society, Brower concludes that the true source of the Mississippi is neither Itasca Lake nor Elk Lake, nor even the stream discovered by Jean N. Nicolet (1836) called "Nicolet's Infant Mississippi River," but the "Greater Ultimate Reservoir" which receives its water supply from aerial precipitation and stores it in various component lakes and springs. Some of these lakes include Hernando de Soto, the Triplets, Whipple, Morrison, and Floating Moss; the streams that proceed from them include the beginnings of the Nicolet as well as the Mississippi. From Nicolet's middle lake the main river proceeds "in an unbroken channel" to the Gulf. After lobbying successfully to have this headwater region preserved as Itasca State Park (1891), Brower served as its first commissioner. The appendix includes an historical account of how the Mississippi and the Lake of the Woods came to form part of the northwestern boundary of the United States. Its author was Albert James Hill (1823-1895), who was also instrumental in the creation of Brower's report
