Red, White & Blue



In June of 1788, George Washington sent a letter to General Benjamin Lincoln, who had accepted General Cornwallis' sword at the surrender in Yorktown.

"No Country upon Earth ever had it more in its power to attain these blessings...Much to be regretted indeed would it be, were we to neglect the means and depart from the road with Providence has pointed us to, so plainly; I cannot believe it will ever come to pass. The Great Governor of the Universe has led us too long and too far...to forsake us in the midst of it...We may, now and then, get bewildered; but I hope and trust that is good sense and virtue enough left to recover the right path."

Timely words indeed. Enjoy!
