Happy Birthday America, July 4th, 2017 -

Greetings to all of our members and fellow American Patriots.

In honor of America’s 241st birthday, may I share a few thoughts with you?

The Meaning of the American Revolution

“The American Revolution was not a common event. Its effects and consequences have already been awful over a great part of the globe. And when and where are they to cease? 

But what do we mean by the American Revolution?  Do we mean the American War?  The Revolution was affected before the war commenced.  The Revolution was in the hearts and minds of the people, a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations.  While the King, and all in authority under him, were believed to govern in justice and mercy according to the laws and constitution derived to them from the God of nature, and transmitted to them by their ancestors, they thought themselves bound to pray for the king and all the royal family, and all in authority under them, as ministers of God ordained for their good. But when they saw those powers renouncing all the principles of authority, and bent upon the destruction of all the securities of their lives, liberties, and properties, they thought it their duty to pray for the Continental Congress and all the thirteen state congresses, etc.
The people of America had been educated in the habitual affection for England as their mother country….
But when they found her cruel as Lady Macbeth…their affections ceased and were changed into indignation and horror.
This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.”

    John Adams, February 13, 1818 to his wife, Abigail

The Federalist Papers #14: “Had no important step been taken by the leaders of the Revolution for which a precedent could not be discovered, no government established of which an exact model did not present itself, the people of the United States might, at this moment, be numbered among the melancholy victims of misguided councils, must at best have been laboring under the weight of some of those forms [of government] which have crushed the liberties of the rest of mankind. Happily, for America, happily we trust, for the whole human race, they pursued a new and a more noble course. They accomplished a revolution that had no parallel in the annals of human society. They reared the fabrics of government which have no model on the face of the globe.” James Madison

Washington’s exhortation to honor, bravery, liberty
“Head Quarters, New York, July 2, 1776

The time is now at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own’ whether Houses, and Farms, are to be pillaged and destroyed, and they are consigned to a State of Wretchedness from which no human efforts will probably deliver them. The fate of unborn Millions will now depend, under God, on the Courage and Conduct of this army-Our cruel and unrelenting Enemy leaves us no choice between a brave resistance, or the most abject submission; this is all we can expect-We have therefore, to resolve to conquer or die: Our own Country’s Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall be infamous to the whole world. Let us therefore, rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, …-The Eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, and we shall be their blessings, and praises, if happily we are the instruments of saving them from the Tyranny mediated against them. Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and shew the whole world, that a Freeman contending for Liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth.”

July 4th, After making some revisions, Congress approves the Declaration without dissent (New York abstained, but approves July 15th)

General Orders  Headquarters, New York July 9, 1776                      

The Appointment of Military Chaplains

“The Hon. Continental Congress having been pleased to allow a Chaplain to each Regiment, with pay of Thirty
 –Three Dollars and one third per month----The Colonels or commanding officers of each regiment are directed
 to procure Chaplains accordingly; persons of good Characters and exemplary lives-To see that all inferior
officers and soldiers pay them a suitable respect and attend carefully upon religious exercises. The blessings
of Heaven are at all times necessary but especially so in times of public distress and danger-The General
hopes and trusts, that every officer and man, will endeavour so to live and act as becomes a Christian Soldier
 defending the dearest Rights and Liberties of his country.” George Washington

And finally, from Arthur J. Stansbury, 1828:

Q." What do you mean by Revolution?"

A." A revolution means some great change of government; and we ought to ever remember ours with ardent gratitude to God for so great a blessing and with lasting love and reverence for those good, and wise, and brave men, who went through such dangers and sufferings that their country might be free." 1828.

From his  Elementary Catechism of the Constitution/ 1828, which he wrote for sixth grade boys at that time in
our history.
