Count Casimir Pulaski & BSC

Count CasimirWe’re proud of Dr. AnnMarie Kajencki, professor of English at Bismarck State College!  Dr. Kajencki gave a presentation at a conference about Casimir Pulaski at Casimir Pulaski University of Technology and Humanities in Radom, Poland, October 6-7, 2015.  Her presentation focused on Pulaski’s critical role in the revolution’s Battle of Brandywine on September 11, 1777.

In 2005, Dr. Kajencki wrote a children’s book, Count Casimir Pulaski: From Poland to America, a Hero’s Fight for Liberty, which is being featured in another conference presentation about Pulaski in American children’s literature.
