Subject: SLS: George Washington's Vision (fwd)

>George Washington's Vision
>Valley Forge, the winter of 1777, American forces were fighting against the
>British, the most powerful nation in the world. Many believe that only 3%
>of the American people took part in the struggle for independence, while
>"Tories" gave aid and comfort to the British cause. 
>George Washinton's vision is recorded at the Library of Congress
>"This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a
>dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing
>opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had
>given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I
>found language to inquire the cause of her presence. A second, a third and
>even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my
>mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes. 
>"By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me. I would have
>risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition
>impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become
>useless, as though it had become paralyzed. 
>"A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me.
>All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor,
>Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed as if it had become filled with
>sensations, and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarify, the
>mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my
>sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to
>experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany
>dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were
>alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my
>"Presently I heard a voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn,'
>while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly. I now beheld
>a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually
>dissipated, and I looked upon a strange scene. Before me lay spread out in
>one vast plain all the countries of the world; Europe, Asia, Africa and
>America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows
>of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific. 
>" `Son of the Republic' said the same mysterious voice as before, `look and
>learn,' At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel,
>standing, or rather floating in mid-air, between Europe and America.
>Dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled
>some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast
>some on Europe. Immediately a cloud raised from these countries, and joined
>in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly
>westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of
>lightning gleamed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans
>and cries of the American people. 
>"A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out
>as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose
>heaving billows it sank from view. A third time I heard the mysterious
>voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn,' I cast my eyes upon
>America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after
>another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted
>with them. 
>"Again, I heard the mysterious voice say, `Son of the Republic, the end of
>the century cometh, look and learn.' At this the dark shadowy angel turned
>his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill-omened spectre approach
>our land. It flitted slowly over every town and city of the latter. The
>inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As
>I continued looking I a saw bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of
>light, on which was traced the word `Union,' bearing the American flag
>which he placed between the divided nation, and said, `Remember ye are
>brethren.' Instantly, the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons
>became friends once more, and united around the National Standard. 
>"And again I heard the mysterious voice saying, `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. Throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light
>by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by
>land and sailed by sea to America. Our country was enveloped in this volume
>of cloud, and I saw these vast armies devastate the whole country and burn
>the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up. As my ears
>listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of swords, and the
>shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious
>voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.' When the voice had
>ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth,
>and blew a long and fearful blast. 
>"Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and
>pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At
>the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word Union, and
>who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended
>from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately
>joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well nigh overcome,
>but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and
>renewed the battle. 
>"Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious
>voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.' As the voice ceased,
>the shadowy 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
>"Then once more I beheld the 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 with o loud voice" `While the
>stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall
>the Union last.' And taking from his brow the crown on which blazoned the
>word `UNION,' he placed it upon the Standard while the people, kneeling
>down, said, `Amen.' 
>"The scene instantly began to fad and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing
>but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappearing, I
>found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same
>voice I had heard before, 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 in this greatest conflict the whole world united
>shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to
>live for his God, his land and the Union. With these words the vision
>vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision
>wherein had been shown to me the birth, progress and destiny of the United
