Who saved countless people from the horror of the Hinkley Fire? How did it feel to be on a sinking frozen ore boat just yards from shore in Duluth during the Mataffa storm? What was it like to lead over 50 African-Americans out of bondage in the largest mass escape in the history of the Civil War? “Minnesota’s Songwriting Sleuth” Charlie Maguire has the answers to these and more stories in gripping songs and ballads he has researched meticulously over the years. Maguire will perform those songs at New Ulm Public Library on Tuesday, February 4 at 6:30 p.m. This free public program is made possible by a grant provided by the Traverse des Sioux Library Cooperative and funded with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
