Tuesday, January 11, 2022 - "Fort Lincoln Internment Camps" is the subject of a free presentation coming up on Thursday at the Former Governors’ Mansion in Bismarck. The presenter is Perry Hornbacher, professor of history at Bismarck State College, and he joins us for a discussion about the camp’s use as a detention center for Japanese-Americans. ~~~ Tom Isern shares a Plains Folk essay, “The Grizzly of the Plains.” ~~~ It can be hard to get back into the swing of things after the holidays. In some religious traditions, there's a rest after Christmas...it's called the 12 days of Christmas, but the return to work gets its own celebration. We learn about St. Distaff Day.
