The American Revolution as vocation

"The American Revolution was the grand operation, which seemed to be assigned by the Deity to the men of this age in our country."

- Patrick Henry, letter to Henry Lee, June 27, 1795, quoted in The Founders on Religion: A Book of Quotations, James H. Hutson (editor) (Princeton University Press: 2005), pg. 17.
