As we looked upon the riddled carcass of our half-eaten turkey, my stepfather invariably sighed and said, “Looks like we’re going to be eating a lot of turkey hash.” For years I did not question this pronouncement, which conferred the same sense of certainty and finality as the “amen” at the end of a prayer. I’m not sure how old I was — maybe even in college — before it occurred to me that not once in my entire life had I eaten hash made from the leftovers of a holiday turkey.

On Nov. 24, 1898, the Lawrence World observed: “Col. Roosevelt has told another side of the invasion of Cuba, and while told with the air of a comedy, yet it is the handsomest tribute of all them to the valor of Americans. He told the story of how determinedly the different regiments fought to get to Cuba first and lead the charge. That’s the way with our boys. When they have war they want to fight all over.” — Courtesy Watkins Community Museum
