History’s Sausages

Carl von Clausewitz

My French pen pal really liked this column which begins:

“A couple decades ago when Duluth was about to disinter the memory of its most notorious episode and the forgotten graves of the three innocents who were lynched on First Street, I read an anguished letter to the editor. It came from a father imploring Duluth not to memorialize the lynching. It was better left forgotten. How could he possibly explain the foul deed to his daughter?”

Read the rest.
