Grave rededication June 22 (06/16/2013)
When: Saturday June 22, 2013 - 10:30 a.m.

Where: Mt. Auburn Cemetery, Utica, MN

The Minnesota Civil War Commemoration Task Force, Rochester Civil War Roundtable and Utica Township will host a grave rededication for Private David Taylor at the Mount Auburn Cemetery in Utica, Minn., on Saturday June 22, 2013. Taylor, a native of Ireland, was a member of Company K of the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry. He died on July 3, 1863. It is uncertain as to whether he was wounded in action during the famed “Charge of the 1st Minnesota” on July 2 and died the next day, or whether he was killed in Pickett’s Charge. Taylor’s grave will be re-dedicated with a new stone marker that will be unveiled during the cemetery.

The ceremony is open to the public. Mt. Auburn is a small cemetery located in Utica Township, 31 miles east of Rochester. From Rochester take Highway 52 to east bound Interstate 90 and exit I90 at St. Charles. Go through St Charles and turn right (east) on Highway 14 to Utica. One mile east of Utica turn right (south) on County 18 (blacktop) for 2.5 miles to the intersection with Cemetery Road and turn right.
