    Just finished reading Every Man Did His Duty and found it excellent. I am a direct descendant of one of the men depicted in the book and discovered things I never knew before reading this account. The book does a great job of presenting the men of the First Minnesota and each one has photo.5/5(1). Includes bibliographical references (p. ) and index. Every man will do his duty: an anthology of firsthand accounts from the age of NelsonPages:

    In the astonished silence, he suggested, "Nelson confides that every man will do his duty." Someone proposed substituting "England" for "Nelson," and Lieutenant Pasco asked to change "confides" to "expects," because "confides" would have to be spelled out, flag by flag, in Popham's signal book.   This much is clear: For whatever reason, Trump is unwilling to accept the reality of what happened in and, more alarming, unwilling to do his duty to seek to prevent it from happening again.

    Every subject’s duty is the king’s, but every subject’s soul is his own. Therefore should every soldier in the wars do as every sick man in his bed: wash every mote out of his conscience. And, dying so, death is to him advantage; or not dying, the time was blessedly lost wherein such preparation was gained. Duty recognizes a cause greater than one’s self. As men and as fathers we have a duty before God and man to do what is right, honorable, and sacrificial. On this occasion of Father’s Day, I call upon every man to do his duty: his duty to those who are in his care and his duty toward whatever task is in his trust, regardless of the personal.
