Below in the website section, I also pasted a hot link to a Mankato Free Press piece. Among other things, it recognizes the anniversary of the death of Mankatoan Leo Lorentz, who was killed in action in France, October 3, 1918.


From this link, you will find a description of the artist who created the artwork from which the image was captured.
