President James Monroe appoints Lawrence Taliaferro as Indian agent at St. Peter’s. He showed honesty toward and concern for the Indians, maintained peace between Dakota and Ojibwe tribes, and regulated relations between Indians and settlers.

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.
