Mychael Rambo, Prudence Johnson, members of the Roe Family Singers, the Brass Messengers and more) revisit 1865. Using songs, stories, letters and newspaper accounts, the team explores how Minnesota endured the Civil War, dealt with its aftermath, and grieved over the loss of Lincoln.A production of the Minnesota Historical Society, the Minnesota Civil War Commemoration Task Force, and Minnesota Public Radio.
