THE SPIRIT OF ’76.–

While the Senate of Maryland were in session in the State House, at Annapolis, a number of soldiers entered the ante-room, and inquired if the Senate Chamber was not the place where Gen. Washington once stood. An employee of the House answered that it was, and showed one of them, as near as he could, the spot where Washington stood when he resigned his commission. The young man reverently approached the spot, and standing for several minutes apparently fixed to the place, hastily turned and left the Chamber, exclaiming, that he could stand it no longer, for he “felt his Fourth of July rising too fast.”

I'm a lover of God and His Son Jesus Christ. In addition I love to make yesterday's words come alive through the republishing of good and profitable books of old. The Civil War project is an ongoing labor of love. - Karan
