Join the Dakota County Historical Society and the Sibley Historic Site for July's Mendota After Hours: "Women Who Would be President" 

Many have tried and none have succeeded but it is not from a lack of trying!  In this presentation we will examine four very different women who ran for President in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. We will look at why they ran, what they accomplished, the obstacles they faced, the impact they made on American politics, and the legacy they left behind.

Frank Sachs is a retired Twin Cities educator of 40+ years.  Thirty-seven of those years were at The Blake School in Minneapolis where he is currently Faculty Emeritus.  While teaching at Blake, Frank had the good fortune to study the Constitution and the American legal system at the Supreme Court Institute for Teachers at Georgetown Law School, and to be selected as a Gilder Lehrman Scholar to study George Washington at Mt. Vernon, Virginia, and the Founding Fathers at New York University.

During his teaching career Frank received several awards including being named as a recipient of the Presidential Scholars - Teacher Recognition Award, by the U.S. Department of Education in 2007 and he received a Citation of Merit for Outstanding Achievement and a Meritorious Career from his alma mater, The University of Missouri-Columbia in 2009.

Space is limited, so please register below. This is being offered as an in-person event, drinks and light refreshments will be served.
