After starting the Flamethrower Volume 2 story, which is based in Manitoba,
I was researching about lacrosse at the Manitoba Archives and came across the following headline:
“Winnipeg welcomes the Lacrosse Champions of America, The St. Paul Lacrosse Club”
WHAT??? Champions of America in lacrosse? St. Paul? Really?

I spent the next five years researching and documenting the game of lacrosse in Minnesota from the arrival of the Ojibwe in the 1600s to the white settlers arriving after treaties.
