Summary, etc.: "For millennia, the place where the Minnesota River joins the Mississippi has been a crossroads, a place of strategic power. In the 1820s, the newly arriving U.S. troops built Fort Snelling on the bluff above the rivers. That limestone fortress has stood for almost two hundred years as both an actor and a symbol in Minnesota's history. And this primer similarly provides an overview of the site's military significance as well as its import to native peoples, its role in the foundation of the state, and its meaning for Minnesota's diverse people."--Provided by publisher.
