Creating Our Future Campaign, Minnesota Historical Society


(piano music) [Annette Atkins] History has the power to
change our lives by giving people the tools to wonder, to imagine, and to remember
times before they were alive. (piano music) [Ford Bell] The Minnesota Historical Society
preserves all kinds of history of our state. I made a gift to support digitization of the
collections here so they are accessible for research, for families, or for individuals who want to
learn more. The newspapers that are being preserved, they
cover the entire state. Everybody can access their story through the
Minnesota Historical Society. [Sharon Sayles Belton] Telling the story of
Fort Snelling will really give people, not only in Minnesota, but really in this entire region, an understanding how this fort, this place, really affected the lives of not just the soldiers, but all of us who call Minnesota home. The revitalization project is an opportunity
for every Minnesotan to say, I want a piece of this story. This story belongs to me. (cheering) [JLor] I’m really glad that I did History
Day because it genuinely changed my life. [Susanne Hollingsworth] I make donations to
Minnesota History Day and other education programs for the Minnesota Historical Society
because they’ve made a huge difference in the lives of my students, and I think they make a huge difference in the lives of students throughout the state. [Atkins] History and our understanding of it is the way that we create a future where there is room for all of us. I want people to give so that together we
can create the future we want to live in.
