Jean Eddy Clerius never met Myles Standish. To be honest, he may have never heard of one of the more famous pilgrims, but it doesn't mean that the Hagerstown Community College guard isn't down with what Standish was feeling on this day oh so many years ago. The turkey is going to taste a whole lot better - maybe even different - to Clerius today. Like the Plymouth Rock crowd, this will be a “first” Thanksgiving … a real first opportunity to make a grateful acknowledgment of all gifts, benefits and favors that have been received.

The muster rolls tell a unique story of the Civil War - one that contradicts the stereotype of a struggle between white farmers, North and South. Scan the record books and you'll find Union Shawnee and rebel Choctaws, Confederate rabbis and Arab immigrants. There were units called the Slavonian Rifles and the Irish Brigade and one individual who defied classification - Sgt. Frank Mayne from Pennsylvania, who was discovered to be a woman by the name of Frances Day. There also was a group of people who many believe were onlookers to the war - African-Americans.

They stood straight, 58 right hands covering their hearts, some with tears in their eyes as they listened to a high school choir sing the national anthem, now, finally, their national anthem, too.  It was the biggest class of naturalized citizens in the federal courthouse in memory in Martinsburg. They all took the oath that pledges to "absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate.... "  They came by choice, some out of desperation, some seeking opportunity, others to join family members already here, and others just longing to be free.

Citizenship clause must be repealed To the editor: It is way past time to repeal the clause in the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution that grants citizenship to anyone born within our borders. The rest of it must be retained. If a pregnant woman can walk in, fly in, parachute in or otherwise get into our country, her child born here is a citizen with all of the benefits thereof. That great incentive for illegal entry can be removed by a constitutional amendment.
