Governor Urges Juneteenth Study, Participation

LINCOLN, NE (June 18, 2021) – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued the following statement in observance of Juneteenth, which is celebrated Saturday, June 19, 2021. “On June 19, 1865, news of both the Emancipation Proclamation and the North’s victory in the Civil War reached Galveston, Texas—sparking celebrations as enslaved Americans received word of their freedom. Juneteenth commemorates this day of joy and the end of slavery. Juneteenth is an occasion for all Americans to give thanks for the blessings of independence and freedom before the law. This weekend, Nebraskans will gather for Juneteenth celebrations. Nebraska’s first recognized Underground Railroad site, Mayhew Cabin, will hold its annual Juneteenth celebration this year at the Civil War Veterans Museum in Nebraska City on Saturday. I invite Nebraskans to learn more about the significant role it played for those on the journey to freedom (mayhewcabin.org).”

WERE YOU THERE?

There’s an old spiritual that asks the question “Were you there when they crucified my Lord?” In last week’s column, I wrote about my experience of the march through downtown Atchison on June 11 commemorating the 1870 lynching of a black man named George Johnson. In that column, I compared Johnson’s suffering and death to that of Jesus, who was also falsely accused, tortured and executed.

Nebraska City church dates back to 1850′s

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - First United Methodist Church is considered to be the first Methodist church in Nebraska. It is believed to have started in 1853. “It has its roots with a Reverend Gage who was in the area. He was a itinerant preacher,” Peru State College history professor Sara Crook said. “Because this had been the site of the original Fort Kearny, there were people in the area even in 1853. So that’s when the church started to meet as a group. In 1854 when the Kansas-Nebraska Act was official, and Nebraska was a territory, a group of people started to form the church. In the winter of 1855, they started to built it.”
