Dayle Besemer Awarded the New Ulm Tourism Person of the YearApril 28, 2022
New Ulm’s Hermann the German Monument was recently featured on KSMQ Public TV. Hermann the German is the nickname of Arminius (18/17 BC–AD 21), the chieftain who led a coalition of Germanic tribes to victory in 9 AD over a Roman army in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest. The statue is modeled after a similar one in Detmold, Germany and was dedicated in New Ulm in 1897. It is the third largest copper statue in the United States. The monument is the only National Register of Historic Places property of its kind in Minnesota and is an impressive remembrance of German ancestry.
