Current Exhibits in the Main Museum

Company B Rides Free


This exhibit, a project of North Dakota State University public history students, will look at the story of Company B of the First North Dakota Volunteer Infantry.

“Captain Keye… asked all who were willing to volunteer their services… to step two paces to the front.  Every man of the fifty-four stepped up at once.”   


Thus did the local Fargo paper describe the response of Fargo’s National Guard company, Company B, to President McKinley’s call for volunteers to serve in the Spanish-American War.
