Chocolate bunnies. A special family dinner. Church sunrise service. Have you ever considered what it would be like if there were no Easter?

Barstow considered these possibility in his poem If Easter be not True.

History comes to life at Gettysburg By Carolyn Van Loh Sentinel Tribune Every newscast these days contains one or more stories about our military forces in the Middle East. We are saddened to hear when another life has been lost, especially when a family from Minnesota is impacted. Since the first brave individuals set foot on the shores of what would later become the United States of America, families have been impacted by the death of loved ones who gave their lives for the cause of a free nation. I visited the battle- fields at Gettysburg on our recent trip to Washington, DC. The war memorials along the Mall are a vivid reminder of the many patriots responsible for the free- doms we enjoy today. The World War II memo- rial now under construc- tion recognizes each state for its contributions. The group I was with was proud to see the Minnesota section of that memorial. The Viet Nam War Memorial has names of many Minnesotans who gave their lives in that conflict. Minnesota had been a state for just four years when its troops played a crucial role in the Battle of Gettysburg in 1862. A large memorialpays trib- ute to the Minnesota troops involved i the bat- tle on July 2. More than 50 % of the Minnesota troops died in that battle. Other Civil War battle grounds claimed the lives of more patriotic Minnesotans. A visit to the battle- grounds at Gettysburg brings to life the accounts we studied in American history classes.
