Courage and Patriotism: Stories of America’s Beginnings

Stories teach with power and touch the souls of young and old alike. Through stories, heroes come to life as vibrant mentors to us and our children, living in a world of collapsing values.

This presentation, centered on the Revolutionary War, allows our early heroes to teach sacrifice, selflessness and tenacity: Why did soldiers defy enemy bullets and bayonets to fight for their rights? What makes a general great? Who are we today because of the sacrifices of men, women and children who pushed through fear to forge independence?

America is noble because of those who gave her birth: George Washington, the Great Man without whom America might never have been; Nathaniel Greene and Henry Knox, Washington’s genius-generals; The Maryland 400— Washington’s Immortals—who gave all to save their brother soldiers; the secret intelligence organization that allowed Washington to win the Revolutionary War at the risk of their lives—these and many other stories help children reverence the people

Did the Founding Fathers Believe in the Christian Doctrine of Providence?

Everybody believes in providence. For some, the belief is in the unseen forces of economics or social evolution. For others, the state is god and either controls everything, or ought to. Many believe that an arbitrary chaos determines? what happens. The Christian belief in God’s predetermining and guiding hand stands in contrast to all other suppositions. What did the founders of the United States believe? George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, John Adams, John Witherspoon, and others all spoke of providence in various contexts. The belief itself was well-defined in the various church confessions and had been a concept that was common currency in normal conversation in America. What did they actually mean by it? We need to examine the founders’ intent, especially the Enlightenment skepticism so prevalent in Europe. Such doctrine has practical implications for the founding of the Republic and for us in our own lives and times.

The Amazing Story of The Doolittle Raider and the Samurai

One of the boldest stratagems of the Second World War involved the bombing of Tokyo by a bomber group led by Col. Jimmie Doolittle.

The First Africans in English America – A Heritage of Diligence and Freedom.

One of the most remarkable stories in American history pertains to the arrival in 1619 of the first Africans to the English colony at Jamestown. Down through the centuries, the descendents of those first Africans could count among their number cattle ranchers, teachers and Confederate soldiers. History is rarely neat and tidy and often flies in the face of prevailing orthodoxies. Few stories capture the imagination and offer a countervailing story of providential triumph like that handful of Bantus of Ndongo from Angola in the earliest days of the Virginia colony.
