Hauntings and History of the Emerald Isle

Ireland is famous for its "thin places," a membrane or a thin layer between worlds that cross over each other. From pagan times to present, Ireland's dark history has been recorded in its abbeys and churches, forts and castles, jails and graveyards by those who lived during those turbulent times and often perished because of them. Their ghosts are eyewitnesses to this history. Sometimes, they are the history.

June Gossler Anderson has traveled from her hometown of Anoka, Minnesota, the Halloween Capital of the World, where ghosts abound (and she leads Ghost Tours) to Ireland. to check out their ghostly residents as well. In researching these haunted places, she has found the history that produced these earth-bound spirits to be as fascinating as the ghosts themselves.

Minnesota Recipients of the Medal of Honor

When the National Medal of Honor Committee decided to hold its annual convention in Minneapolis/St. Paul on October 3. 2016. it asked the Minnesota Chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) to research and write the biographies of the 72 Minnesota men who have received this prestigious award-their country's highest honor. This was a good fit for the DAR which advocates education, historical preservation, and service to veterans.

June Gossler Anderson was one of the 27 women participating in this project. In addition to writing four of the bios, she took the research a step farther and saw to the editing and publishing of these bios in a 242 page book, Minnesota Medal of Honor Recipients from the Civil War to Vietnam.

During her hour-long power point presentation honoring the heroes, you will meet the 14 year-old orphan who was awarded the Medal of Honor for heroism during a Civil War battle' the Schoolmaster who took his students to war, dooming their hometown to oblivion; the Commander of the USS Arizona who went down with his ship at Pearl Harbor' a Hungarian Freedom Fighter who signed up to fight Commies in Vietnam; and a host of other brave men who fought and died for their Country.

We'll view a 1,100 year-old church that has sunk up to the 2nd floor, and the Church of the Virgin Mary that was the scene of a deadly competition between two brothers as they vied to build the tallest tower. And no visit to Krakow would be complete without a visit to Wawel Castle where we will encounter the fire-breathing statue of Smok, the Polish dragon, that lived in a cave underneath the castle.
