    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

    Bobby Marshall: Pioneering African American Athlete
    by Steven R. Hoffbeck
