This article reports about the support received by the idea of naming the St. Louis River Bridge at Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, after Ojibwe Chief Biauswah, who gave his life to save his son. Supporters of the plan to name the bridge after Biauswah want to do so to honor all American Indian veterans who fought and sacrificed for their people. Renaming the bridge will require approval from the state legislature.
