Uriah Smith (1832-1903) was a Seventh-day Adventist author and editor who worked for the Review and Herald (an Adventist periodical)for 50 years. He was a gifted church leader-a teacher, writer, editor, poet, hymn writer, inventor, and engraver. Uriah Smith produced many of the first illustrations that appeared in the Review and Herald. He also wrote a number of books, one of which, Daniel and the Revelation, became the classic text on Seventh-day Adventist end time beliefs. Uriah Smith was also an inventor, patenting such diverse things as an artificial leg with a moveable ankle and a school desk with an improved folding seat. He died in 1903, while on his way to work.
The United States in the Light of Prophecyby Uriah Smith
The United States--what are they? Two hundred years ago, this question could not have been answered; it could not even have been asked. Now it can be answered by the dwellers in every quarter of the globe. Then a few small settlements of earnest men, flying from the religious intolerance of the Old World, dotted a narrow strip of coast line on our New England border. Now a mighty nation, with a vast expanse of territory stretching from ocean to ocean, and from regions almost arctic on the north to regions equally torrid on the south, embracing more square leagues of habitable land than Rome ruled over in its palmiest days, here holds a position of independence and glory among the nations of the earth.
