                  Historical Documents of the United States




These are but a few of the many historic documents which tell the story of the founding of our country as well as frame the religious and civic freedoms we enjoy even to this day.  While our country has never been a 100% Christian nation (as some like to believe), no one can doubt the profound effect the Bible and Christianity has had in securing God's blessings and making this nation a beacon of hope and freedom coveted by many other nations of the world.
