September 15, 1862

The state of Minnesota and the Ojibwe living near Crow Wing signed a peace treaty. Negotiated to alleviate settlers’ fears that the Ojibwe would join in the U.S.–Dakota War, in truth the agreement was void because the state does not have the power to make treaties.

Thanks to Mrs. Judi Vittito’s 6th grade class at Northfield Middle School for the research on September’s Day in History.

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