From what I observe from day to day, I am convinced that much of
the great turmoil experienced in the building of this exceptional
country has never seen the light of day in “modern” history
books.  Even in military schools, such as the Academies, I doubt
that the strong human attributes of the great leaders are given
much ink.  There is much to be gained by knowing something of
the direction which impelled them to command, lead and fight as
they did.  Of course, much has been written concerning George
Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and many of the
founders of the nation; but what of their backgrounds?  What gave
them the inspiration, dedication and drive to do what they did?
In “days of old,” much was learned about how Washington was not
only a good man, a general and a president, but he was also a man
of prayer.  In 1774 the colonies were seeking God’s will about
whether or not to strive for independence.  On one such
contentious day he wrote in his diary: “Went to church and fasted
all day.”  And in his Farewell Address in 1796, he said: “Of all
the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity,
Religion and morality are indispensable supports.”  How much has
been excised in these intervening years!
