I like to take photographs..well most of you know that already. Sometimes I see things in photographs that I don’t like.
Do you see it? The four wheeler tracks. In years to come will these tracks be like the wagon wheel ruts that the pioneers left behind…some of which are still visible?
The Tall Grass Prairie plants..how long will they survive?
These are in our wildflower area. The land we live on must have been part of the prairie at one time..long ago ..maybe buffalo bellies were tickled by native flowers and grasses.
A remarkable fifteen year old girl left behind a sketch of her life in 1862. She lived along the Minnesota River during “The Sioux Massacre”/Dakota Uprising/ U.S. – Dakota Conflict. I am honored to share Catherine’s story on the Hubbard County Historical Museums Blog. I am transcribing it just as it was written. I am trying to boost the readership..so it will be a.. too be continued kind of a blog over the next ten days. I may not have time to write every day. My hope is to create some conversation throughout the community and promote our Civil War Sunday and our upcoming program “The Dakota Conflict.” Here is the link to 150 years ago: Part One.
So what are you leaving behind..tracks in the ditch? Wildflowers? Or stories that will be read in the future? :)
