It's a couple of months before the Battle of Gettyburg's anniversary, but on Memorial Day it's right and just that we remember what price some Minnesotans paid for freedom and the Union back in the day. Power Line has an excellent post on the legendary deeds of the First Minnesota at Gettysburg. Also, check this Pioneer Press article on remembrance ceremonies at Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis.

Mitch Berg asks us to recall the men of the USS Swordfish, which went out on patrol to the waters about Okinawa one day in 1945 and never came home to harbor. There's a memorial to the lost submarine in St. Paul's Como Park.
