To celebrate the centennial of the American Legion, The Blue Earth County Historical Society will be presenting a special exhibit entitled, A 100 years & A Million Stories: A History of the American Legion. This exhibit will highlight the history of the American Legion and the Mankato Lorentz Post 11 from their beginnings in 1919 to their present-day activities. Throughout their 100-year history, Blue Earth County’s American Legion Posts and its Auxiliary groups have played a major role in our communities. We will explore the history, community service, and camaraderie that have shaped the enduring legacy of the American Legion through their stories.
Free and Open to the Public
