Parishioners at Emmanuel United Methodist Church in Hagerstown brought the story to life Saturday during a Living Nativity play that will be repeated today.

To the editor: On June 24, just two months after his 21st birthday, our son, Joshua L. "Doc" Kidwell, was taken home to be with our Lord. Although the angels came for him much sooner than we had planned, we find comfort in knowing that he "passed the test" at a very early age, and now awaits for the rest of us who believe. I am writing this letter in hopes of reaching the many people in our community who have extended their condolences to our family during a most difficult time.

He is an actor who has performed with the likes of Kevin Costner. He is a metaphysician and lecturer and a licensed hypnotherapist. But, by nature, Jones is a storyteller. “I can write anywhere I go. I can imagine at any time,” he said during a telephone interview.

While Clara Barton treated the Union wounded on the battlefields of the Civil War, Sally Tomkins ran a hospital for the Confederacy in Richmond, Va. Marilyn Iglesias of Gloucester, Va., portrayed Tomkins on Friday during a re-enactment marking the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam. The event will continue this weekend on farmland just north of Antietam National Battlefield near Sharpsburg. “She was just interesting,” Iglesias said of Tomkins. “The more you read about her, the more you want to know.”   Known as the Angel of the Confederacy, Tomkins' hospital boasted the highest survival rate of any of its kind - North or South.

At a time when women were not allowed to travel without male companions to battlefields or tend to men who were not their relatives, Clara Barton nursed and comforted the wounded and dying on Civil War battlefields. It was at the Battle of Antietam that Barton, who was to become known as the Angel of the Battlefield and who would go on to found the American Red Cross, would have her first experience on a battlefield on which bullets were flying. Before that, Barton campaigned for about a year, collecting supplies while she waited, before she received permission from Col. Daniel Rucker, assistant chief quartermaster for the U.S. Army in charge of the Washington Depots, to assist at battle sites, said Susan Rosenvold, superintendent of the Clara Barton's Missing Soldiers Office, a satellite of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in Frederick, Md. Rucker supplied Barton with wagons and assistants, and she loaded a wagon with medical supplies, most secured from local Ladies Aid associations, and headed to Sharpsburg from her Washington, D.C., home, said Rosenvold, who recently was awarded the Save Historic Antietam Foundation (SHAF)

The year was 1970. A gentleman was terminally ill and suffering great pain from his fight with bone cancer. He was tired, with few options left, and knew his life's journey was coming to an end. Pain, misery and anguish were his daily companions. Hope and dignity had left this individual alone to deal with his plight. His family and friends wished for a peaceful ending to this story. As matters became worse, the man contacted Dr. Peter Goodwin, a family practitioner who worked in Portland, Ore. The cancer patient asked the doctor for some pills or medicine that would end his suffering and permit him to die with some dignity.
