$25/$20 MNHS and DCHS members

Have a drink with friends while learning about Minnesota history in the beautiful setting of the Sibley Historic Site. A new topic will be offered each month. In October, join David Schreier for a presentation titled "A County Divided." During the Civil War, Dakota County was a “house divided against itself.” The county was a battleground of differing attitudes, values and beliefs. Schreier will discuss how defiance and bravery were the results of the verbal and moral conflict among residents as the war raged on. 

Light food and one drink ticket will be provided with each paid admission for ages 21+. This program is offered by the Dakota County Historical Society.
