It having pleased the Almighty…

"George Washington" by John Ward Dunsmore

“It having pleased the Almighty ruler of the Universe to defend propitiously the Cause of the United American-States and finally by raising us up a powerful Friend among the Princes of the Earth, to establish our liberty and Independence upon lasting foundations, it becomes us to set apart a day for gratefully acknowledging the divine Goodness, and celebrating the important Event which we owe to His benign Interposition.” George Washington, General Orders – May 5, 1778
