‘Dawn of the Red Arrow’

National Guard documentary 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 two showings of the Wisconsin National Guard’s documentary, “Dawn of the Red Arrow.”

The film will be shown at both 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 30, at the Holly History and Genealogy Center, 321 S. Main St., Waupaca..

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 who joined forces to become the 32nd Division.

The division went on to forge a name for itself on the battlefields of France, and was a part of one of the most iconic American victories of the war.

Refreshments will be served.

Those interested in attending are encouraged to arrive early to reserve a seat for the free event.
