‪Drive to Cannon Falls to see the resting place of the Colonel of the First Minnesota Volunteers, who led their fateful Charge on the 2nd day of Gettysburg. The same statue is in the Capitol Rotunda in St Paul. The only statue there designed by a women, by the way‬

‪The statue and memorial to Col. William Colvill, commander of the First Minnesota Regiment at the pivotal Civil War battle of Gettysburg, can be found 1 mile east of downtown Cannon Falls in the local cemetery. It marks his final resting place and commemorates the vital role that this Minnesota military outfit played in helping to save the battle and perhaps the war. Their men were called upon to stop a Confederate breach in the Union lines against a far superior force that could have won the day for the south, but in doing so they paid a terrible price. To this day, their unit is noted as having sustained one of the highest casualty rates of any US military group. For history buffs, it is well worth a visit.‬
