Works-For-Me Wednesday: Verifying Founding Fathers’ Quotes

wfmwheader_4.jpg

With next Wednesday being Independence Day, many of us will likely be posting quotes from the Founding Fathers. Just after publishing several such quotes in our ladies’ ministry newsletter a few years ago, I discovered to my chagrin that many of them had no historical verification. There is a great article called Unconfirmed Quotations at the Wallbuilders site which discusses several of those quotes. Hopefully this will save some of you the embarrassment I suffered. 🙂

Incidentally, Wallbuilders, “an organization dedicated to presenting America’s forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on the moral, religious, and constitutional foundation on which America was built,” has a number of great articles here.
