Minnesota in the Great War
2017 is the 100th anniversary of America's entry in WWI. Historical re-enactor, Arn Kind is touring the Kitchigami Regional Library System to present a unique living history experience. The First World War, which for America, lasted only 19 months, involved more than 100,000 men from Minnesota. They served in the army, navy, marine corps, and medical corps. Arn Kind will dress the part for this exciting living history program as you learn about the causes of the war, why Americans got involved, strategies used to win the war, the role women played, and the life of a typical Minnesota soldier.
Park Rapids, a branch of KRLS, will host Arn Kind in the community room of the Northwoods Bank on Wednesday, May 3rd at 6:00 p.m.
This free Legacy Program is funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008 which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage.
