Viewing Buel A. Man (1840-1923).
A native New Yorker, Buel Man enlisted in the Union Army in 1862, fought in several famous battles, and was discharged as an officer in 1865. He relocated to Minnesota in 1869. He had an ambition to become a lawyer and found time to read law on his own or under the guidance of some practitioner. In 1883, at age 43, he was admitted to the bar in Fillmore County. He moved to Winona a few years later and practiced there until his death on March 8, 1923. On August 28, 1923, the Winona County Bar Association presented a memorial to him in district court.
