By Joy Pearson In February 2013, we had the privilege of attending an awards ceremony where several youth were recognized for their written essay on Black History. Much to our surprise, and to our dismay, none of the recipients in either of the categories were children of color. We rejoiced in the fact that these individuals took an interest in black history and explained why they felt black history was important. However, we were disappointed that there were no children of color, which indicated to us a lack of knowing and reporting on their own history. Research suggests that the reading and writing skills of African American youths are much lower than that of other races. Throughout the ceremony we witnessed black children participating in the program through a skit that included dancing and singing. Certainly we are not minimizing their talents but we would have like to have seen their interests displayed through the reading and writing activities. As pastors and educators we were compelled to create a vehicle to encourage black children to read and write. The following Sunday we launched the Students Taking Academic Recognition Seriously (STARS) program at United Faith Christian Ministry (UFCM). Once a month, a topic is selected and instructions provided. Students then follow the instructions and submit the writing, according to grade level - elementary, middle and high school - via email. Each article is reviewed by educators who are skilled and knowledgeable in that grade level. The reviewer for each category provides feedback to each of the students to enhance their reading and writing skills. On the fourth Sunday of each month, the reviewers present the name of one child, per grade, who they determined submitted the best reflection based on the rubric. Each of the three individuals whose article was selected is awarded a monetary gift.

This program is designed to encourage all UFCM youth to read and write; therefore, students have a choice of whether or not to participate. It is our hope the parents would get involved and support the efforts of their children. Although the writing assignment is not about receiving the monetary award, we tell our children they will never know when or how God will bless but they can be assured that He will bless. Therefore they should always prepare and expect great things to happen. Almighty God has given every person the ability to achieve and advance in life and, thus everyone should seize every opportunity to make his/her life and the life of others better. We have the intellect to carry out His will and the power to cultivate good. No other creature has the talent, skill, aptitude and competence that God has given to us. Second Timothy 1:7 says God has granted us with a sound mind. Therefore, we must be careful what enters our minds. Instead of having an idle mind, one should develop his/her mind through reading, studying and storing information beneficial for life and peace while always striving for the best. We should never be content with mediocrity. To this end, we strongly appeal to everyone to never cease to read and write; to think and to learn. We implore everyone not to waste your mind. Seek and gain new knowledge every day. Each day we encourage you to make a conscious effort to fill your mind with whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and whatever is admirable. Just remember, you will ultimately be and do what you think!

The farm of John Henry Myer had been a bucolic delight, occupying a prominent rise above the Ni River valley, and scarcely a mile and a half east of Spotsylvania Courthouse. The Myer family had purchased the land in late April 1863, and the distance it provided from the horrors of war ravaged downtown Fredericksburg had been a major consideration in the transaction. John Myer, the father, had emigrated from the Kingdom of Hannover in 1846, making Fredericksburg the home for his growing family and the location of his prospering bakery enterprises on William Street, backing onto Market Square. Agriculturally, Myer was looking to transition the fields to wheat which would provide his own flour. The previous owner, Mordicai Gayle, had concentrated on tobacco, as many of the surrounding Spotsylvania farms had done. Just a year after their exodus, John Myer was conscripted into the Confederate service, and as if by fate, the war he was entering came virtually to the doorstep of his home. Positioned in a landmark earthwork known today as Heth’s Salient, the 40th Virginia Infantry were just two miles west of his farm, and on May 15, 1864, billows of black smoke ominously filled the sky above the idyllic homestead. The Union Army was burning his property in a retaliatory move caused the previous day by the rash actions of an entrusted tenant, 36

Thomas Jett. Jett had introduced himself to the occupying Union forces on the morning of May 14, 1864 as noted in the Official Records. When the tide shifted later that afternoon and overwhelming Confederate numbers took the ground back, Jett brashly fired upon the retreating blue coats with his personal weapon, but the Confederate victory was short lived, and the Union retook the hill with relative ease as the evening came on. Further exacerbating the Union force’s ire against the Myer property was the death of Lieutenant Colonel Charles Wiebecke of the 2nd New Jersey Infantry. Wiebecke and his men had been thrust into the action of May 14th almost as an afterthought, providing a modest bolstering of the defensive line that afternoon. Sent forward as support for skirmishers examining a suspected Confederate advance, the Jersey men ended up taking the solid brunt of the attack when the suspicion proved all too real. The regimental chaplain for the 2nd later described the incident, “Suddenly, the enemy advanced in overwhelming force, and the Union skirmish line fell back thro’ its supports, thus leaving Colonel W with his men in front. Their well directed fire broke the rebels’ first line. But other lines of battle continued to advance. At this moment, Col. W. raised himself from behind the protection of a few rails, whence his men were firing, to reconnoiter the advancing foe. While so


doing, he was struck by a bullet, which entered at the right eye, penetrated to his brain, causing instant death.” The Colonel’s body was left in Confederate hands for several hours before the Union retook the hill, and in that interim, the Lt. Colonel Charles Wiebecke of the 2nd New Jersey chaplain explains to Infantry Regiment. Killed on Myer's Hill, May 14, 1864. Wiebecke’s widow, Im age from a reunion ribbon in the author's collection. “…the barbarous foe had plundered your husband’s body of his watch, his money, John Cummings is a visual historian and most of his clothing.” This and the author of two books on the maltreatment of the body inflamed the Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania region.
