From Columbus to Ronald Reagan

Howard Carpenter did a great job on his review of Seven Miracles That Saved America: Why They Matter and Why We Should Have Hope by Chris Stewart and Ted Stewart.

We learned about seven of the miracles that took place at critical times in our nation's history:
  • Columbus's discovery of America
  • Survival of Jamestown
  • The timely fog during The Battle of New York
  • Creation of the United States Constitution
  • Abraham Lincoln & the Gettysburg Address
  • The pivotal Battle of Midway
  • President Reagan's miraculous survival

Howard showed us his great-grandfather's Civil War sword.

This picture doesn't do it justice. It's beautiful--and very heavy. Thankfully, the sharp point has been filed down.
