John Kinzie: The Last Silver Man
In his book, “The Silver Man,” Peter Shrake, curator at the Circus Museum in Baraboo, Wis., examines the life and times of John Kinzie, the last Indian Agent in Wisconsin. In his live presentation, Shrake will paint a picture of the life and times of Kinsey, the relationships he built, and the stories in which he was a prime player.
