ARTICLES

Ordinary Heroes: The Second Minnesota Battery of Light Artillery
by Vickie Wendel
Marching, fighting, foraging and scouting, as victors and as prisoners, the men of the Second Minnesota face danger, discomfort, and even tedium--and reflect on “that little word, War.”

Open House Journal: Telling Their Story
by Benjamin Filene
What makes a neighborhood? An exhibit curator ponders the intangibles of stories, memory, change, and belonging as he meets former residents of St. Paul’s Railroad Island.

Bobby Marshall: Pioneering African American Athlete
by Steven R. Hoffbeck
“The Idol of the Gridiron, the Star of the Diamond, the Pet of the Lady Fans.” Little known today, this all-around athlete was also a pillar of his Minneapolis community.
