Title Commendably - Meritorious
Description The day was rightly titled, "Wash day," since it required from early morning until sometimes after dark before it was finished. It was a united effort and each member of the family sensed the need of being useful and doing his task well that day. Each one was tired but had a satisfied feeling of accomplishment when the day was over. The smell of those clean, much washed clothes blowing gently in the breeze or standing like stiff sentinels on a wintry night is a part of my heritage that brings memories of a generation that learned a way to work together and to find happiness and satisfaction in a job well done.

COMMENDABLY-MERITORIOUS Remelda Gibson Tooele, Utah Professional Division Second Place Historical Essay As an organization of Volunteers, the Minutemen of Sanpete County were armed and ready for military duty upon immediate summons. There were no prolonged parting moments with exemplary wives and tearful children. RIGHT NOW, was an honored element of time. Serving with courage and fidelity, the Minutemen were not outfitted in uniforms. They were distinguished by durable character instead of by apparel. These men of high caliber donned any kind of headgear in close reach, from broad-brimmed to high-crowned hats or close-fitting peaked caps. They wore any type of clothing available. Their firearms included shotguns, muskets, Yougers, and old time flintlock guns. Amtnunition was difficult to acquire. It had to be carried across the plains by covered wagons and ox teams. -43-
