                   IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

                              May 9, 2000

 Received and referred to the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources

                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
 Recognizing the Hermann Monument and Hermann Heights Park in New Ulm, 
 Minnesota, as a national symbol of the contributions of Americans of 
                            German heritage.

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 
        American government;
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.

            Attest:

                                                 JEFF TRANDAHL,

                                                                 Clerk.
