Fort Snelling was built early in the 1800s, when Minnesota was part of the American Western frontier. Parts of it were used as a graveyard for American military men starting in 1870. The original fort is on the east side, but the cemetery sits on the due south side of the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, just north of the Interstate 494 and the Minnesota River, nestled between runway 30R and runway 35 of the airport.
While doing business in the area of the airport, I passed by the neatly organized grid of simple graves each marked by a white cross. The graves go out from the road as far as the eyes can see over the low rises, and it takes a minute to go past them all at 40 mph or so. Per wiki, there are just barely under one quarter of a million graves there, on 436 acres, which is over 2/3 of a square mile.
Then, I looked out at the streets again on the other side and the people in the light rail cars. This is likely not the most intense area of Somaliland in the formerly Great White North city of Minneapolis. However, there were plenty non-normal Minnesotans, if I can put it that way, in the area. The MSP airport area in general has very many, doing that work that Minnesotans apparently won't do anymore. (Well, it's hard when the Somalian lead won't hire Americans so readily ...) Don't get me started again* on the whole farce of a TSA that searches up American grannies and toddlers, yet allows Somalians to work out on the ramp among the airliners - oh, yeah, thorough background checks were done on all of them, THOROUGH, I tells ya'!
What'd those men buried in those quarter million graves with the white crosses die for? What would they think if they could see past the manicured green grass over to the road or out to the city on the other side?
* Something like it, though, is in this old post of ours - .Minnesota Nice, terrorists, and the Security State.
