The Mazeppa Area Historical Society would like to "THANK" all those who attended our meeting on Saturday April 27th. We listened to Civil War Speaker Josh Boraas. Josh is "Well Versed" on the local civil war history. He portrays Francis Jerry (who lived where the Beforts have their junk yard)- Frances was in the "3rd Minnesota" & 2nd Sgt. Josh Boraas is part of a local re-enactment group of the Civil War. Comments were "Could of listen to Josh longer!"---Josh was excellent in his presentation!

"Helen Reiland met with Harry S. Truman, portrayed by Raymond Starzmann, member of the Harry S. Truman Library of Kansas City, Mo.
President Truman was quoted in saying "History to a community is like memory to an individual. If a community looses its history, it is debilitating."
Mazeppa is a very historical community with history being made every day!
