RCHS/TPT Film – North Star: Civil War Stories

North Star Civil War Stories

Ramsey County Historical Society is proud to partner with TPT-Twin Cities PBS to produce a ground-breaking new documentary, North Star: Civil War Stories, which uncovers hidden details of African-American men from Minnesota involved in the Civil War. Using emerging research and scholarship, North Star: Civil War Stories looks at the lives and contributions of these men during and after the war.

Four stories bring to light the hidden histories of African American Minnesotans during and after the Civil War. These unsung heroes made unique contributions to the Union and their new state, but the details and records of their involvement still challenge historians.

Created for not only the broadcast viewing audience, but also with educators and classroom audiences in mind, this important documentary is available on DVD for use in schools, universities, and to the general public.
