Tweeting the Civil War

Civil War and/or Minnesota history buffs… Tomorrow the Minnesota Historical Society will kick off 2013 by spending New Year’s Day tweeting examples of how Minnesotans in 1863 reacted to the implementation of the Emancipation Proclamation (drawing on diaries, letters, and other primary sources). It will be the first of several major Civil War sesquicentennials to be so covered by MHS in 2013, 2014, and 2015.
