Minnesota shares a Lake Superior water border with Michigan and Wisconsin on the northeast; the remainder of the eastern border is with Wisconsin. Iowa is to the south, North Dakota and South Dakota to the west and the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Manitoba to the north.

“Minnesota” is derived from the Dakota phrase Mni Sota Makoce, or Land Where the Waters Reflect the Clouds.

Little War on the Prairie – Growing up in Mankato, Minnesota, John Biewen says, nobody ever talked about the most important historical event ever to happen there: in 1862, it was the site of the largest mass execution in U.S. history. Thirty-eight Dakota Indians were hanged after a war with white settlers. John went back to Minnesota to figure out what really happened 150 years ago, and why Minnesotans didn’t talk about it much after.
