I don’t recognize our beloved Country anymore!
It certainly isn’t the U.S. I grew up in, and every single day our freedoms are being eroded by people that can’t and don’t and never will appreciate what freedom really is and what it costs.
I happen to be one of those who appreciate those individuals that went before and those that still defend us today. Those who fought and died (and are still dying) for our Freedom. We all stand on their shoulders today.
Lt. Colonel Thomas Marshall, 7th Virginia Cavalry, Aide to Stonewall Jackson
Colonel Thomas A. Marshall, Jr., was a Confederate soldier in the American Civil War.
He was also a believer in the one true God and demonstrated his devotion to his Lord and Savior on and off the battlefield.
He served mightily and valiantly in the 7th Cavalry along side General Turner Ashby and he also served as an aid to the venerable, Stonewall Jackson (more on Marshall’s contributions below).
The Land of Canaan, by Thankful A. Leonard, Plymouth, Massachusetts, 1834
I love history, especially U.S. History. I write about it a lot.
Sadly, its a stark reminder of who we used to be as a people, and who we are are no longer.
It really wasn’t that long ago that we relied on God for our help.
We used to pray and give thanks to God for our country–the very God that brought us protection, wealth, and prosperity. And I’m not talking about the god of Islam (or any other god that people may serve in the U.S. today). I am referring to YHWH [Yahweh] the one true God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
