Martens' discussion, which drew around two dozen people to the Park Grove Library, was a program of the Washington County Library system to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the First Minnesota Volunteer Infantry that served in the Civil War.

The program is funded with grant money from a state arts fund backed by sales tax revenue.
