Further Feedback from a Friend about my "To a Romantic Defender of ther Downtrodden..." post:
Your comments about Thomas Kane are very appreciated. I agree that he is a hero of the Latter Day Saints.
The young men and I took a trip to N. PA for canoeing and camping. One of the leaders took us out of our way to Kane, PA.
Wow!!! It was amazing to me. Thomas Kane moved at retirement to N. PA and had a small (very small) town named after him - Kane.It is quaint and only known for its 'berries festival' in the fall.
Thomas was not welcomed at the few local churches, so he built a small church (very well constructed of block stone) for his family to worship. He is buried at the front yard of the church.
When we visited the church, it was staffed by missionary adults who took us on a tour and explained the story of Colonel Thomas Kane. I was amazed and now believe that Mr. Kane is a true hero.
I do not know if his church is still staffed for visitors or it was discontinued. Never-the-less, it was/is a amazing memory for me. I only hope that the young men felt a similar spirit during that special day.
