In your home, are national holidays like Memorial Day and July 4th just fun summer days to cook out, go to parades, and enjoy watching some fireworks? What can you and your family do to make them more meaningful?
If you’re still riding the momentum from Memorial Day and looking forward to July 4th only about a month away, a great resource you may want to take advantage of is The Valley Forge’s Online History Tour of the southeast campaign in the War for American Independence. Featuring Marshall Foster and Bill Potter as the expert tour guides, the tour takes audiences through South Carolina and Georgia to explore the battlefields, scenic locations, and heroes that experienced God’s providential blessing in a war against the greatest empire on earth.
But it’s more than just a dry lecture that could be used for history credit in high school or college. It’s an opportunity to learn about the stories of godly men often obscured by modern-day historians. It’s an opportunity to discover the worldview that shaped and propelled the founding fathers into action. That founding generation who pledged “their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor” to “preserve the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
In this newly released preview video, The Valley Forge shares a 15-minute peak into the Online History Tour with Bill Potter and Marshall Foster, which your whole family can watch together from the comfort of your own home. A great way to prepare to worship and praise God this July 4th for our nation and Christian legacy.
