George Washington's Vision

"Again I heard the voice say, "Son of the Republic, look and learn!" At this, the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia and Africa.

"Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: from each of these countries arose thick black clouds that were soon joined into one. And throughout this mass there gleamed a bright Red Light, by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America; which country was enveloped in the volume of cloud.

"And I saw dimly these vast armies devastate the whole country and burn the village, towns, and cities that I beheld springing up.

"As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, the clashing of swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I again heard the mysterious voice say, "Son of the Republic, look and learn." As the voice ceased, the shadowy figure of the angel, for the last time, dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious.

"Once more I beheld villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried in a loud voice, While the stars remain and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last," And taking from her brow the crown on which was blazoned the word, "Union," she placed it upon the Standard, while people kneeling down, said, Amen.

"The scene instantly began to fade away, and I saw nothing but the rising curling vapor I had at first beheld. This also disappeared, and I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor who said, "Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted. Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third, but the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for God, his land, and the Union." With these words the angel vanished from my sight.
