Andrew Jackson Fisk Historic Trail
Andrew Jackson Fisk was fourteen when he enlisted in the Second Minnesota Cavalry, Company A. Two years later, he began his service as quartermaster sergeant as Fort Wadsworth (later named Fort Sisseton).
Join Andrew as he shares with you, in his own words, some of his experiences as a soldier stationed at a prairie fort. As you tour the grounds, watch for the signs posted at each structure. Also, plan to tour the visitor center in the North Barracks. There you will find other exhibits depicting military life on the prairie in the 1800s.
