Gideon and Agnes Pond House


For many, the short U.S./Dakota War of 1862 came as a surprise and left behind unexpected issues. Historian Mary Bakeman will explore some of the decisions the survivors faced in recovering their lives. Now retired form the active book business, Mary continues to search out these untold stories. She volunteers in the MHS State Archives, is a church historian, and serves on the MN Annual Conference Commission on Archives & History.
