HCLL presents info on Minnesota’s military museums

The Headwaters Center for Lifelong Learning program on Sept. 24 will focus on the resources of the Minnesota Military Museum and Hubbard County Historical Museum.

Headwaters Center for Lifelong Learning (HCLL) presents "Minnesota Military Museums" on Tuesday, Sept. 24.

From 1 to 2:30 p.m. at Park Theatre, HCLL Board Chair Marty Leistikow will relate some of the stories and exhibits that can be found at the Minnesota Military Museum at Camp Ripley, near Randall.

She will share a short video tour of the museum and give examples of individuals who have contributed to Minnesota's rich history of military service.

Leistikow commented, "The museum's exhibits bring vivid and informative descriptions of the sacrifices of many heroes. Most Minnesotans know of the historic charge of the First Minnesota Regiment at Gettysburg, but learning about individual soldiers and their stories makes it even more real."

Rod Nordberg and Nancy Newman will describe and show some of the Hubbard County Historical Museum's collection of military artifacts, and will share information about how to research the service records of individuals.


The program is open to the public, free of charge and handicap accessible.
