    At the 1889 dedication of the 20th Maine Monument on Little Round Top, Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain delivered what remains among the best descriptions of the transporting power of Civil War battlefields and why we continue to protect and visit these hallowed grounds today. On this, the battle's 150th anniversary, the conclusion of Chamberlain's address, narrated by country music superstar and historic preservation advocate Trace Adkins, reminds us all of Gettysburg's unique significance to the American people.

          Vermont Humanities Council fall conference: A Fire Never Extinguished: How the Civil War Continues to Shape Civic and Cultural Life in America. The Civil War casts a long shadow in the United States. As Robert Penn Warren put it in his classic 1961 book, The Legacy of the Civil War, “many clear and objective facts about America are best understood in reference to the Civil War.” VHC’s 2014 fall conference, presented in collaboration with the Vermont Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission, explores the influence that the War had and continues to have on literature, visual art, race, memory, and politics. The conference, taking place five months before the end of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, will seek to identify lessons vital to American democracy that still can be learned from the War and its aftermath. http://fireneverextinguished.org/ http://www.vermonthumanities.org

            The Oregon Juneteenth celebration in 2011 was a great success and an empowering opportunity for Portland. Skanner publisher and civic leader Bernie Foster was the Grand Marshal for the Freedom Trail Parade that started at Martin Luther King Jr Blvd and ended at the festival grounds at Jefferson High School. Participants in the parade included Portland City firefighters at Station 14. At the Juneteenth Festival there was music and dancing, fun and entertainment for the children, food vendors and more. The neighborhood and nonprofit booths filled the high school athletic field including the well-attended US Army Recruitment booth. Another booth was the "Juneteenth History booth" staffed by volunteers from NW Historical Perspectives and Events who told visitors about the history of Juneteenth in America and about the fugitive slaves who moved to Portland in the mid-1860s despite the Oregon "Exclusion Laws" to join the ranks of Oregon pioneers. As part of Oregon's Civil War Sesquicentennial focus, Frank from the "Juneteenth History booth" also spoke about another Oregon connection to the Civil War-- Daniel Drew, a veteran from the United States Colored Troops who is buried in one of Portland's pioneer cemeteries. Over 15,000 veterans from the Civil War moved to Oregon after the war and are buried here. The Civil War 150th anniversary will inspire us to learn more about these heroes who chose to make Oregon their last resting place.

                The Civil War, or War Between the States, changed America forever. More than 40,000 soldiers from Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina were killed between 1861 and 1865, while over 1.3 million slaves were emancipated by the War’s outcome. Its historic impact upon these three states was far greater than from any other war, hurricane or sporting spectacular.
