“Dawn of the Red Arrow” film to be shown at Holly Center

More than 100 years after the end of World War I, Waupaca will remember the work of Company C with a showing of the Wisconsin National Guard’s documentary, “Dawn of the Red Arrow.” The film will be shown at the Holly History and Genealogy Center on Tuesday, July 30 at 6 p.m.

The documentary is the result of the Wisconsin National Guard’s multi-year effort to commemorate the centennial of the 32nd “Red Arrow” Division. Waupaca’s National Guard unit, Company C, was a part of this celebrated division. “Dawn of the Red Arrow” follows the stories of 15,000 Wisconsin National Guard Soldiers and 8,000 Michigan National Guard Soldiers that joined forces to become the 32nd Division. The division went on to forge a name for itself on the battlefields of France, and claimed as its enduring symbol one of the most iconic American victories of the war.

Refreshments will be served. If interested in attending, please arrive early to reserve a seat for this free event.
