MARCH 24, 1858

March 24, 2008

The printing press of the St. Cloud Visitor is destroyed by a mob because the paper’s editor, Jane Grey Swisshelm, a feminist and abolitionist, had angered Sylvanus B. Lowry, a local businessman and slave owner.

Thanks to Palma Wright’s, Louis Lauer’s and Lynn Johnson’s classes at Moorhead Public Schools for the research on March’s Day in History.

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