February 26 – 1857

Territorial delegate Henry M. Rice succeeds in lobbying congress to pass the enabling Act for the state of Minnesota. This act defines the state boundaries and authorizes the establishment of a state government.

Thanks to Tim Holbrook’s Fourth Grade class from Madison Elementary in St Cloud for the research on February’s Day in History.

Thanks also to Minnesota’s Learn and Serve America Service Learning Program for their help.
