Yesterday I had the honor of appearing with none other than President Abraham Lincoln at the cabin shown here on the grounds of Fort Belmont, Jackson, MN. Mister Lincoln was asked to present his famous Gettyburg Address which he performed flawlessly. We were at Fort Belmont to celebrate Pioneer Days, which closes the site for the season. We also discussed the Dakota Conflict of 1862, during which settlers in Jackson were killed and the remainder fled from the county, leaving it abandoned for three years. Our literature about the Dakota Conflict was offered for sale with a significant amount of each sale donated to Fort Belmont, a non-profit organization. We hope you can come and visit us next year.
