Results of that research will be recorded in the mili- tary kiosk coming to the county museum. Below is a sample of Civil War trivia you missed by not attend- lng. *No one from Cottonwood County volun- teered to serve in the union army during the Civil War because no one was living here at that time. Vets moved to the area to claim a homestead. *Over 300 Civil War vet- erans lived in Cottonwood County. *Joseph F. Bean (Company F, MN cavalry) has a family connection to the L.L. Bean Company. *General Stephen Miller presided over the execution of 38 Dakotas in Mankato in December 1862. He was state governor from 1864- 1866 before moving to Windom for his job as a railroad man in the 1870s and died in Worthington. *Hughes M. Graley, Windom, was a confederate soldier who did time in a Paw camp. In exchange for his freedom, he joined the union army and went west to Ft. Ridgeley. *Military units often had ethnic ties--all Norwegian, German, etc. The museum needs more volunteers and funding. Call president Gene Larson for more information.

"The violence of the U.S. Dakota War killed hun- dreds, shattered thousands of lives and forced a whole people from their home- lands. The Euro-Dakota children of fur trader Joseph LaFramboise were caught within that dynamic situa- tion and searched day-to- day for safety from both U.S. troops and Dakota warriors. Their story expresses the complexity of that conflict and its after- math," said Timmerman. Sun Mon 11/12 52/36 Mainly sunny. Highs in the low 50s and lows in the mid 30s. 51145 Mostly cloudy.

ASK A TROOPER My mother just bought one of those electric wheel chairs. Can she drive on the walking paths at the nearby park? It says no motorized vehicles so I was wondering if her electric wheelchair is considered a motorized vehicle? Yes your mother is legal. We are seeing a lot of them out and about, so I will get a little more detailed about their legal operation for you and anyone else concerned. M.S.S. 169.212 talks specifi- cally about the operation of electric personal assistive mobility devices [EPMD]. Our law says that a person operating one of these has the rights and responsibilities of a pedestrian. The law allows an EPMD to be operated on a bicycle path. You should note that no person may oper- ate them on a roadway, side- walk, or bicycle path at a rate of speed that is not reasonable and prudent under the condi- tions. Every person operating one on a roadway, sidewalk, or bicycle path is responsible for becoming and remaining aware of the actual and poten- tial hazards then existing on the roadway or sidewalk and must use due care in operat- ing the device. Keep in mind that an EPMD may be operated on a roadway only while making a direct crossing in a marked or unmarked crosswalk; where no sidewalk is available; where a sidewalk is so obstructed as to prevent safe use; when so directed by a traffic-control device or by a peace officer; or temporarily in order to gain access to a motor vehicle. EPMDs may not be oper- ated at any time on a roadway with a speed limit of more than 35 miles per hour except to make a direct crossing of the roadway in a marked crosswalk. They also may not be operated at any time while carrying more than one per- son. A person operating on a sidewalk must yield the right- of-way to pedestrians at all times. A person operating one on a bicycle path must yield the right-of-way to bicycles at all times. As far as equip- ment, an EPMD, may not be operated unless they bear reflectorized material on the front, back, and wheels, visi- ble at night from 600 feet when illuminated by the lower beams of headlamps of a motor vehicle. A local road authority may not further regulate the opera- tion of an EPMD, except that a local road authority may allow and regulate the opera- tion of these devices on road- ways within its jurisdiction that have a speed limit of more than 35 miles per hour.
