Sheridan’s America

“The world’s history is a divine poem of which the history of every nation is a canto and every man a word. Its strains have been pealing along down the centuries, and though there have been mingled discords of warring and cannon and dying men, yet to the Christian philosopher and historian – the humble listener – there has been a divine melody running through the song which speaks of hope and peaceful days to come.”
