Why commemorate the 3rd of July?

June 30, 2013
By Denis Warta , The Journal

July 3rd is the 150th anniversary of two of the major turning points of the Civil War. Not only was our State of Minnesota a major contributor to the Union Army, but Governor Alexander Ramsey was the very first governor to offer troops to Abraham Lincoln in 1861. It is most fitting that our present governor, the Honorable Mark Dayton, be present in New Ulm to participate in a memorable event, along with National Guard Major General David J.Elicerio and New Ulm native Dr. Peter R. Mansoor, Col., U.S.Army (ret).
