The grant facilitated the researching of content, writing, designing and fabrication 10 interpretive panels at six sites along the MN River Valley to better tell the stories of the MN River Valley, specifically of the U.S. - Dakota War of 1862. This is Part 1 of an overall interpretation of sites related to the U.S. - Dakota War of 1862.

The U.S. - Dakota War of 1862 is partially marked along the MN River Valley but there are many important historical sites that are not marked. Because of the 150th anniversary of the U.S. - Dakota War in 2012, interpretation of this story is a priority for the immediate future.

Kristi Fernholz project director talks about the need and lasting legacy of the project which was funded the Minnesota Historical and Cultural Grants which was made possible by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on November 4, 2008. Administered by the Minnesota Historical Society.
