LANDMARKS: Minnesota Medal of Honor
Hear stories of Minnesota’s recipients of America’s highest military honor.
LANDMARKS: Minnesota Medal of Honor features Medal of Honor recipients from the state. The Medal of Honor is the highest military decoration of the United States of America. This program recognizes the long tradition of the medal itself and honors those from Minnesota who sacrificed so much for our freedom. First issued during the Civil War, 72 residents of Minnesota have been recipients of this most prestigious medal. Doug Ohman, photographer and LANDMARKS host, traces the lives of several of these Minnesota heroes through photographs, family memories and stories. People featured include Private Marshall Sherman who is buried in Oakland Cemetery in St. Paul, Axel Hayford Reed of Glencoe, where he is buried, and Alonzo Pickle of Sleepy Eye, where he is buried, among others.
