This past Tuesday, July 2, Bill Semans and I went to Cannon Falls, Minnesota to attend a ceremony commemorating Col. William Colvill and the First Minnesota Regiment 150 years almost to the hour of the First’s famous charge during the Battle of Gettysburg.
It was a beautiful, early evening when the crowd of a few hundred were treated to a presentation of arms by members of the Minnesota National Guard, a wreath laying ceremony at Col. Colvill’s grave, and the playing of taps as the sun hung low on the horizon.
Bill was interview by several media outlets while there. Some of his interview is included on this nice piece by Kare-11.
Thanks to Major Kristen Auge of the Minnesota National Guard for inviting us.
