My Book Bit
It's American History Month, a great time to read recent books about the American Revolution!<BR/><BR/>For younger readers may I suggest<BR/><BR/>"The Battle of Lexington : a sermon and eyewitness narrative" by Jonas Clark, pastor, Church of Lexington (Nordskog Publishing)<BR/><BR/>The original title of this book was "The Fate of Blood-thirsty Oppressors, and GOD's Tender Care of His Distressed People, 1776". The little book also contains four poems about the era : "Paul Revere's Ride" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow; "Lexington" by Oliver Wendell Holms; "Lexington" by John Greenleaf Whittier; and "Concord Hymn" by Ralph Waldo Emerson.<BR/><BR/>This remarkable document is told by a pastor who found eight of his parishioners dead and many more wounded in the aftermath of the Battle of Lexington, where was fired "the shot heard 'round the world." Everything in the world changed on that day . Now we have an eyewitness to tell us about this earth-shattering event! Pastor Jonas Clark's witness reminds us that we must stand and make a difference for the Lord.<BR/><BR/>I'm Doc Kirby and that's a Book Bit!<BR/>(Book Reviewer Doc Kirby, WTBF-AM/FM, Troy, Alabama.
