It's unimaginable today, even for a generation that saw the Twin Towers fall and the Pentagon attacked. It's unimaginable because in 1814 enemies didn't fly overhead, they marched through the streets; and for 26 hours in August, the British enemy marched through Washington, D.C. and set fire to government buildings, including the U.S. Capitol and the White House. Relying on first-hand accounts, our guest, a renowed historian, will share several different narratives to create a vivid, multidimensional account of the burning of Washington, including the escalation that led to it and the immediate aftermath. From James and Dolley Madison to the British admiral who ordered the White House set aflame, historical figures are brought to life through their experience of this unprecedented attack. Hear the story of a city invaded, a presidential family displaced, a nation humbled, and an American spirit that somehow remained unbroken.
Trying to understand America without Scripture is like describing the human body without including its bloodstream! Today our guest will explain the Bible's role in our nation's defining moments, the undeniable impact of leaders throughout our history who were intimately acquainted with God's Word, and what these verses mean for our nation today.
