Fw: American Minute - October 1st
- American Minute with Bill Federer
"In the language of the Holy Writ, there is a time for all things. There is a time to preach and a time to fight." Thus ended the sermon of Lutheran pastor John Peter Muhlenburg, as he removed his clerical robes to reveal the uniform in the Continental Army. After church service, 300 men of his congregation rode off with him to join General Washington's troops. Born this day, October 1, 1746, and he died this same day in 1807. John Peter Muhlenburg was promoted to Major-General, and later elected U.S. Congressman and Senator. In 1889, Pennsylvania presented a statue of John Peter Muhlenburg to represent the State in the U.S. Capitol Statuary Hall.
