Miracles of the American Revolution by Larkin Spivey

Was the birth of the Republic an accident of history or part of a divine plan?

Is God on America's side?

Is it possible a providential hand intervened at critical junctures during the American Revolution?

Larkin Spivey, a decorated Marine Corps officer and respected military professor, believes so.

This provocative account of the American Revolution offers historical evidence that the hand of God was at  work during the pivotal era of America's founding.  Author Larkin Spivey, a respected military historian, shows how a series of remarkable and miraculous occurrences laid the foundations for the Republic.  With compelling facts and interpretations, this portrait of early America is both amazing and uplifting.

Whether you agree with his conclusions about how God's providence ties in with American history, Larkin hopes that you will continue reading to learn about the "magnificently complex men and events that contributed to the founding of America, and why I might consider them miraculous.
