Did you know that Minnesotans were the first to volunteer troops to fight in the Civil War? Did you know that Minnesotans fired the first shots at the beginning of America's involvement in the Pacific war during World War II? Did you know that a famous Minnesota aviator was the first to make a solo, non-stop flight across the Atlantic Ocean, stretching and proving the capabilities of aircraft?

Arn Kind, a teacher for the past 37 years, will share his love of history and provide a hands-on experience about the many ways the state of Minnesota was first. Join us for an exciting look at Minnesota history!
