The Life and Times of George Wallace Jones

November 16 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

Sinsinawa Mound was at one point the seat of power for the vast Wisconsin Territory, which spanned from the Canadian border and Lake Michigan west to the Pacific Ocean. The Wisconsin Territory was the largest geographic territory or state in the Union of the States, and its author and public servant, General George Wallace Jones, was a national figure who originally came to the Tri-State area in 1828 and staked claim to Sinsinawa Mound and the surrounding 1,000 acres. John Pregler will present on the fascinating life and times of Jones, with particular attention to his key role in the development of Sinsinawa Mound, Dubuque, Iowa, and the Tri-State area.

Saturday, November 16, 2-3:30 p.m. Freewill offering accepted.

Speaker: John T. Pregler¬†is the historian, author and proprietor of www.TheLensOfHistory.com. John was born and raised in Dubuque, Iowa. John started conducting research and collecting information and artifacts on a variety of topics starting in the early 1980’s including Native American history, the American Civil War, the settling of the Northwest Territory and local pioneering individuals who had significant impact on local and national history.
