From the very beginning of America’s national life, the Christian Faith and Her ministers have been constituent elements—and what may be affirmed with regard to America’s national life may also be asserted concerning Her colonial life. The earliest charters granting English settlement in the New World advocated the Christian Faith, and the first constitutions of the thirteen colonies did the same.

When America’s Founding Fathers convened the First Continental Congress in 1774, it was determined they would begin their deliberations following the prayers of Christian chaplains. Thee practice of prayer being offered prior to political deliberation was very much a part of the English tradition, and this practice was observed in America from the earliest eras of colonial and national life. But, in the middle of the nineteenth century, this practice was challenged. In response, and able congressman arose to wield both historical and practical defenses for the use of Christian chaplains in the Congress and United States military. This brief pamphlet details that champion’s defense.
