MARCH 25, 1854

John Lind is born in Sweden. He became the first Swede to be elected
governor of MN, the first Swede elected to Congress, and became President Woodrow Wilson’s envoy to Mexico in 1913.

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.
