"I have often looked at that behind the president without being able to tell whether it was rising or setting. But now I... know that it is a rising...sun." This is what Benjamin Franklin said about George Washington's arm-chair at the Pennsylvania state house.
What does that say for our country today and what did it say during the Civil War? I think it was saying that good times are ahead for the country. Our Country has gone through some very hard, and trying times but she made it through them all by turing back to God. That is the only way to make our country a rising sun again. The Civil War was a very trying time but it brought the country to its knees. America turned to God during the Civil War and many, many lives were saved through Christ. Christ is what made our country a rising sun and is what will keeping always rising.
