About Sedan, MN

SEDAN, a city in Grove Lake and Bangor Townships, is named for a city of France, famous for the battle fought on September 1, 1870, between the Germans and the French, which resulted in the surrender of the French army, leading directly to the establishment of France as a republic. The city was incorporated as a village on November 19, 1897; it was surveyed in 1887 as Thorson but was changed soon after to Fowlds for Jim Fowlds, one of the first settlers; a post office operated under that name, 1887-92, with Charles A. Warner, postmaster, at which time it was changed to Sedan, with John H. Warner, new postmaster, in the Warner general store. The Minneapolis and Pacific Railroad came in 1887.
