On the right, Sgt. James S. Frederick, who fought with the First Wisconsin Cavalry in the Civil War, losing an arm during the assault on Fort Tyler in 1865; on the left, Rev. Basilios Lambrides, a Bulgarian-born, German-educated, American-based Greek Orthodox priest, who once helped to settle a potentially violent strike at a Utah copper mine by appearing among the miners in his vestments, holding his cross aloft. My parents have had slightly less dramatic lives, but I am ever grateful for their love. Happy Thanksgiving!
