“Death of a Dream” by author Paul Lundborg

Death of a Dream” by author Paul Lundborg
Plan on attending an interesting presentation to be given by Paul Lundborg who authored a book about his Swedish ancestors who settled in west central Minnesota bordered by Dakota Territory in 1861 to fulfill their dream of a better life in America. By August 1862 they were living as four households in four crude cabins-two Lundborg families and two Broberg families. There were 21 persons altogether ranging in age from 52 year old Maja Lena Lundborg to 10 month old John Broberg and they had thankfully survived their first full year in their new homeland. All of that changed on Wednesday, August 20, 1862, the third day of what came to be known as the US/Dakota War of 1862. That day was the beginning of the death of their dream.
Paul will give his presentation on Friday, August 18, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. at the Browerville Community Center. TCHS invites the public to this interesting day.
