"Those who are alive receive a mandate from those who are silent forever. They can fulfill their duties only by trying to reconstruct precisely things as they were and by wresting the past from fictions & legends." -Czeslaw Milosz

History Harvest Held August 2
The Mandan Historical Society hosted a “History Harvest” event at its museum on the grounds of the ND State Railroad Museum in northwest Mandan. Volunteers were available to interview, photograph objects and scan artifacts relating to our history. The information gathered will be preserved in the MHSoc archives and used on its website and/or used in future displays.
The event was free and refreshments were served.
