About this title


The establishment in 1917 of a camp at Fort Snelling for the training of officers for the army has aroused curiosity in the history of Old Fort Snelling. A gain as in the days of the pioneer settlement of the Northwest the Fort at the junction of the Minnesota and Mississippi rivers has become an object of more than ordinary interest. Old Fort Snelling was established in 1819 within the Missouri Territory on ground which later became a part of the Territory of I owa. Not until 1849 was it included within Minnesotii boundaries. Linked with the early annals of Missouri, Michigan, Wisconsin, I owa, Minnesota, and the Northwest, the history of Old Fort Snelling is the common heritage of many commonwealths in the Upper Mississippi Valley. The period covered in this volume begins with the establishment of the Fort in 1819 and ends with the temporary abandonment of the site as a military post in 1858. Benj.
