U.S. Faith History - Prayer at Valley Forge

This is from the wonderful collection found at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Here we have a painting depicting General Washington praying during the dark days at Valley Forge.

This is one more in a long chain of examples showing the faith our forefathers possessed. We do indeed have a Biblical foundation or a Christian foundation.
