Two hundred years of Minnesota history spring to life in this lively and captivating collection of essays. THE NORTH STAR STATE encompasses the wide range of Minnesota's unique past -- from the Civil War to the World Wars, from frontier life to the age of technological innovation, from Dakota and Ojibwe history to the story of St Paul's black sleeping car porters, from lumber workers and truckers' strikes to the women's suffrage movement. In addition to investigative articles by the state's top historians, editor Anne Aby has assembled captivating first-person accounts from key moments in Minnesota history, including George Nelson's reminiscences of his years in the early nineteenth-century fur trade; the diary of Emily Goodridge Grey, an early African American settler; and Jasper N Searles's letters home from the Battle of First Bull Run. From the quintessential to the quirky, from the panoramic to the particular, these essays tell a fascinating history of our state.Culled from the best of the award-winning Minnesota History Magazine, the essays in THE NORTH STAR STATE are arranged in sections that focus on a particular aspect of life and culture, including race and ethnicity, politics and law, industry, war, labour, education, and other areas of inquiry central to understanding our state's unique history. These engaging sections invite readers to dip into topics of interest or read from cover to cover. Every article is thoroughly annotated and indexed, and a timeline quickly places the major events of the book into their proper context. Equally ideal as a gift or as a classroom companion, THE NORTH STAR STATE is excellent as an introduction to the state's history or as a compendium for the serious scholar.

In the spring of 1848 seventy-six slaves from the nation's capital hid aboard a schooner called the Pearl in an attempt to sail down the Potomac River and up the Chesapeake Bay to freedom in Pennsylvania. When inclement weather forced them to anchor for the night, the fugitive slaves and the ship's crew were captured and returned to Washington. Many of the slaves were sold to the Lower South, and two men sailing the Pearl were tried and sentenced to prison. Recounting this harrowing tale from the preparations for escape through the participants' trial, Josephine Pacheco provides fresh insight into the lives of enslaved blacks in the District of Columbia, putting a human face on the victims of the interstate slave trade, whose lives have been overshadowed by larger historical events. Pacheco also details the Congressional debates about slavery that resulted from this large-scale escape attempt. She contends that although the incident itself and the trials and Congressional disputes that followed were not directly responsible for bringing an end to the slave trade in the nation's capital, they played a pivotal role in publicizing many of the issues surrounding slavery. Eventually, President Millard Fillmore pardoned the operators of the Pearl.
