Sartell Minnesota Culture
A professor at St. Cloud State University has found evidence of slavery in several Minnesota counties before and after the Civil War - a groundbreaking discovery that sheds light on the state's history and its role in the civil rights movement. The small town of Stillwater is known for being quiet and peaceful, but the North Star State has been known for more than a century as a hotbed of slavery and other forms of oppression. It is located on the Mississippi River, and the surrounding undeveloped land consists mainly of woodland and farmland.
The city of Benton and Stearns counties in the state stretch across both sides of the Mississippi River and there are three main routes to Sartell. The current location of this city was called "The Third Rapids" because it was the place where French fur traders encountered rough waters on their journey from Saint Anthony Falls to Minneapolis. Although it is a migration and has assumed the status of a destination, there is also an urban area focused on health care, with a hospital, health centre and medical centre, as well as a nursing home. Sartsell is home to the University of Minnesota - St. Cloud State University and Minnesota State Medical Center.
The city continued to grow slowly and became a number of businesses in the city centre, and since then the city has grown slowly as it has become a business centre. Watab Creek in Sartell marks the site of a battle between the Chippewa Anishinaabe and Dakota, who had lived in northern Minnesota since the 1820s. Living unhappily between two warring tribes, the Ho-Chunk worked less than five years when they moved again in 1853 and sold water for a lake - three years later. The Chippendale and Anishesinaabes' raids on the Dakota in the south continued, controlling all of Northern Minnesota until the 18th century. They moved back to their traditional territory in southern Minnesota, but not until the late 19th century.
In the 1850s and 1860s, the city's slave population was small, only in the single digits, Lehman says.
By the mid-19th century, the number of slaves was approaching 20, and Southerners were spending their holidays in other river cities, including the Twin Cities and Stillwater. There are many migrants who settled in Minnesota and went on vacation, but they traveled mainly along the Mississippi, and so Reverend John C. Smith and his family traveled to Minnesota in the early 19th century.
Southerners were able to travel to Minnesota with their slaves because the DRE declared that slaves as property were not citizens and could not be sued to gain their freedom, even in states that were not slaves.
The Sartell family was largely Presbyterian and helped to organize one of the first churches in the city, the First Presbyterian Church, which served on Sundays and which interested local Protestants. In the 1850s and 1960s, it became known as a fur trader's outpost because of the Mississippi River's upper limit at the time. The town was founded in 1856 as the village of SARTell with a little over 1,000 inhabitants and a church of about 500 inhabitants.
