Abstract: Young Galactic supernova remnants offer the ability to obtain high spatial information on supernova (SN) ejecta and expansion asymmetries. Here I briefly present some recent X-ray, optical, and infrared results on two young supernova remnants (SNRs) which reveal properties not easily studied through extragalactic SNe research. These include the fine scale structure of the ejecta and optical vs. X-ray emission properties in a Type Ia SN remnant (Tycho), and a possible jet-counterjet of high-velocity O, S-rich ejecta and reverse shock front in a Type Ib,c remnant (Cas A).
