Let us unite…

George Washington Yorktown by NC Wyeth

“George Washington at Yorktown” by N C Wyeth

“Let us unite, therefore, in imploring the Supreme Ruler of nations, to spread his holy protection over these United States; to turn the machinations of the wicked to the confirming of our constitution; to enable us at all times to root out internal sedition, and put invasion to flight; to perpetuate to our country that prosperity, which his goodness has already conferred, and to verify the anticipation of this government being a safeguard to human rights.” George Washington

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

Let us therefore rely upon…

"There's a Time to Pray and a Time to Fight" (Unknown Artist)

Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions —The Eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, and we shall have their blessings, and praises, if happily we are the instruments of saving them from the Tyranny meditated against them.” George Washington

Let us encourage each other…

"I have not yet begun to fight!" John Paul Jones (Artist Unknown)

“Our own Country’s Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions—The Eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, and we shall have their blessings, and praises, if happily we are the instruments of saving them from the Tyranny meditated against them. Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and shew the whole world, that a Freeman contending for Liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth.” George Washington, General Orders, July 2, 1776
