This Sunday, No More Gallant a Deed will be featured as part of a Minnesota National Guard ceremony preceding the Twins game at Target Field.
First Minnesota Films wants to thank the Minnesota National Guard and the Minnesota Twins for bringing our film No More Gallant a Deed to the attention of thousands of Minnesotans.
Below is the short promotional video for the film and transcript from the ceremony:
Ladies and gentlemen, in 1861, when President Lincoln called for 75,000 troops to support the Union Army in battle, Minnesota Governor Alexander Ramsey was the first to tender troops from his state. It took less than two weeks to obtain 1,009 volunteers to answer the call. Thus, the First Minnesota entered into military service. July 2nd will mark 150 years since the First Minnesota fought at Gettysburg which significantly impacted the Union being able to win the war. To capture this history, producer Jeff Hohman and his team are producing a documentary to record the lives of these citizen soldiers. Please direct your attention to the video board for a short piece.
