H. CON. RES. 89
Recognizing the Hermann Monument and Hermann Heights Park in New Ulm,
Minnesota, as a national symbol of the contributions of Americans of
H. CON. RES. 89
Whereas there are currently more than 57,900,000 individuals of German heritage
residing in the United States, who comprise nearly 25 percent of the
population of the United States and are therefore the largest ethnic
group in the United States;
Whereas those of German heritage are not merely descendants of one political
entity, but of all German speaking areas;
Whereas numerous Americans of German heritage have made countless contributions
to American culture, arts, and industry, the American military, and
Whereas there is no recognized tangible, national symbol dedicated to German
Americans and their positive contributions to the United States;
Whereas the story of Hermann the Cheruscan parallels that of the American
Founding Fathers, because he was a freedom fighter who united ancient
German tribes in order to shed the yoke of Roman tyranny and preserve
freedom for the territory of present-day Germany;
Whereas the Hermann Monument located in Hermann Heights Park in New Ulm,
Minnesota, was dedicated in 1897 in honor of the spirit of freedom and
later dedicated to all German immigrants who settled in New Ulm and
elsewhere in the United States; and
Whereas the Hermann Monument has been recognized as a site of special historical
significance by the United States Government, by placement on the
National Register of Historic Places: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That the Hermann Monument and Hermann Heights Park in New Ulm,
Minnesota, are recognized by the Congress to be a national symbol for
the contributions of Americans of German heritage.
Passed the House of Representatives May 8, 2000.
