Some thirty-eight years after declaring independence from King George’s reign, a thirty-five year old lawyer observed the bombardment of Fort McHenry in Baltimore Harbor by the British Navy.

“Why not? Why not believe that one day the most critically acclaimed director in Hollywood could be an active Christian layman in his church? Why not hope that the Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting could go to a Christian journalist? Is it really too much of a stretch to think that a major exhibit at the Museum… Read more »
