Algona National Guard Unit Shown -1903 The Algona unit of the Iowa National Guard sat for a portrait at the encampment at Des Moines early in this century-and the results are shown here. Albert Granzow, who is pictured at the far right in the top row, owns the photo reproduced here, but isn't sure exactly what year it was snapped. The unit, the 52nd Regiment, went on manuevers each year, sometimes at Des Moines and other times at Fort Riley, Kansas. Mr. Granzow, when talking about the unit, said the members used to practice shooting on the hills west of Algona-"And believe me, those guns were heavy and packed a real wallop 1" All of the men were too young to be in the Spanish-American War. The unit and the 'old armory continued to exist here for some time, with new men added, of course, and the Emmetsburg unit used to come here for inspection. There was always dancing after inspection and the girls in the area reportedly couldn't wait until the marching ended and the dancing began. The company disbanded about 1910. Most of the men in the above photo have been identified and many are still living, including a few in this area.
