      We flew to Minnesota in the club Cessna 170 in July 1977. While there I, Dan and his cousin David Holsen flew to New Ulm MN. A reporter from the paper drove us to Fort Ridgeley State Park. My grandfather, his father and uncle were in the fort at the great August 1862 Battle of Fort Ridgeley. It was rather eery to see Charles Dills, Charles Henry Dills and Daniel Dills on the plaque on the obelisk. Here, Dan and I pose in front of this obelisk.
