The Life of General Washington
Edited by The Reverend C.W. Upham, 1851
The history of the world, in all its scenes, and at every period, impresses upon the thoughtful student of its records a solemn sense of the amount of good and ill that has flowed from the lives and actions of a few individual men. Much, indeed, has been owing to the force of circumstances, and there have been times, when the energy and wisdom of no single person could have withstood the general current of events. But, in a great proportion of cases, we can trace the issue of things to the conduct and character of particular prominent agents. The destinies of nations and of the race are often deposited in the hands of one man.…
We ought always to contemplate eminent men in this light, and hold them responsible to a great extent, for the influence of their conduct and character. No greater blessing can be bestowed upon a country, than a virtuous and wise ruler, no greater curse than a wicked and reckless one; and our estimate of distinguished individuals should be determined, not by the amount of their talents, or by the dazzling appearance of their actions, but by the moral influence of their lives, and with reference to the degree in which they succeeded or failed in accomplishing the good placed within their reach.

The Character of George Washington
by Richard Brookhiser
he following is adapted from a speech delivered at the dedication of a statue of George Washington on the Hillsdale College campus on May 9, 2003. The statue is the first in a series that will form the Hillsdale College Liberty Walk.
I want to talk today about two qualities of George Washington’s character. The first is persistence. There’s a line in the song “America the Beautiful”: “Thine alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears.” It means that the cities of America, unlike those of Europe, have not been torn and destroyed by war. That’s not quite right. The city I live in, New York, has been attacked twice in American history.
The first attack was in the summer of 1776, and George Washington, commander-in-chief of the American army, was responsible for the city’s defense. The Declaration of Independence had been read for the first time in New York on July 9. That very week, Americans on Long Island saw a British fleet moving toward New York Harbor. The British, who made camp on Staten Island, had at their command ten ships of the line, dozens of other ships, and 32,000 professional soldiers (including Hessians). To oppose this force, Washington had no navy, no ships, and 19,000 soldiers, most of them militia and most of them untrained. Over the next few months, he and his men fought two battles: the Battle of Long Island, in what is now Brooklyn, and the Battle of White Plains north of the city. They lost both.

A Word In Season Vol. 1
by R. J. Rushdoony
These daily messages on the faith for all of life are unlike any compilation of Christian "devotional" ever published. In these pages, you won't find the overly introspective musings of a Christian pietist; what you'll discover are the hard-hitting convictions of a man whose sole commitment was faithfulness to God's law-word and representing that binding Word to his readers.
The multi-volume series is taken from over 430 articles written by Rushdoony over the span of 25 years (1966-1991) for the California Farmer, an agricultural periodical that provided him a regular column entitled "The Pastor's Pulpit." It has long been a desire of many to see these insightful and challenging articles published in a book format. We're happy to announce that the wait is over. Read and enjoy!

Sexual Sabotage: How One Mad Scientist Unleashed a Plague of Corruption and Contagion on America
By Judith Reisman
Since 1948, Dr. Alfred Kinsey has been lauded as a scientific pioneer whose enlightened sexual research freed America's repressed libido. But the so-called freedoms and new morality he "blessed" America with have proven devastating to this country's social and moral fabric.
In "Sexual Sabotage," Dr. Judith Reisman how the "K Bomb" silently has emitted erototoxic radioactivity into our atmosphere – unto the generations.
During World War II and since, Kinsey and his cohorts have sabotaged our nation by entering our libraries and schools as "sex educators" – ridiculing marriage, fidelity, and chastity. Their successful immoral propaganda successfully led to the gutting of the tough laws that previously kept pornography and predators at bay.
Dr. Reisman unveils critical new insights as to where our country went wrong, and how we can and must repudiate the soul-and-body-destroying sexual anarchy Kinsey gave us in the name of "liberation." In so doing, she says, we will reclaim the kind of noble moral character for our country – and ourselves – that is truly liberating.
In "Sexual Sabotage," you will discover:
- How, why, and by whom Americas' traditional sexual morality has been violently subverted;
- Kinsey's true and horrifying plans for American society;
- How and why the children of the Greatest Generation replaced their parents' traditional morality for Kinsey's sexual freedom.
- How billions made by the "Sex Industrial Complex" propelled pornography and the spread of STDs;
- Shocking statistics on child sexual abuse and abortion;
- Why a return to pre-'50s American morality is more essential now than ever
