Cambridge Common doesn’t only provide locals with a space to play sports, have picnics, and inhale illicit substances (if you’re into that, of course): it also commemorates obscure war figures of the past, like the Polish General Casimir Pulaski. Although your “Study of the Past” professor probably forgot to mention him, indie hipsters will likely remember singer Sufjan Stevens’ reverence for Casimir Pulaski. General Pulaski, for the record, was a Polish Patriot who was distinguished for his services to the U.S. Continental Army. The only thing more surprising than the bust of Pulaski is the organization that erected this monument: the Polish American Veterans and Auxiliary Cambridge Post. Next time you stroll through the Commons, take a minute to stop and appreciate.
