Lincoln’s Economic Legacies PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mike Scruggs   
Wednesday, 30 July 2014 00:00

This series is based on the author’s presentation of a paper to the Stephen D. Lee Institute in Savannah, Georgia, in February 2012.

In December 2010, Allen Guelzo, Professor of Civil War Era History at Gettysburg College published an article in National Review entitled “Mr. Lincoln’s Economics Primer,” Quoting Lincoln’s law partner William Herndon, he asserted that Lincoln liked to study political economy. Quoting his fellow Springfield, Illinois lawyer, Shelby Cullom, he asserted that Lincoln was great on political economy. Although Herndon once wrote that Lincoln seldom finished an entire book, Cullom gave him credit for voraciously digesting and assimilating directly or indirectly the works of classical economists like Adam Smith and David Ricardo. He also mentioned John Stuart Mill, Mathew Carey, John Ramsay McCulloch, Francis Wayland, and Henry Carey.

Music-Hester-Charles_Page-11

When I began to write “The Gospel Music Corner” I said that not only would the feature be about groups and artist but also about folks who had made an impact on the gospel music industry. This week’s feature is without question about one person who has impacted the gospel music industry nationwide, as well as the upstate, as much if not more than any other person. This person is Charles (Charlie) Waller, “The Grand Ole Gospel Man.” Charlie is one of the more colorful people in Southern Gospel Music. He loves traditional Southern Gospel Music and works tirelessly to promote and preserve it. Charlie was born in 1948 (a very good year) in Waynesboro Mississippi. Today he divides his time between Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and Georgia.

Growing Writers PDF Print E-mail

What makes a great writer?  Over the years, we've used a number of different activities and texts.  What helped the most?  I polled my students--who range from college age to teens--to see what they thought.  The results were interesting.

While the early activities we shared and the texts we used probably had at least some role to play, our students credited other things for their success: developing strong reading skills, getting to write on topics that were important to them, having a writing buddy for advice and encouragement, analyzing others' papers, and studying a foreign language.

As We See Things PDF Print E-mail

“For you are still carnal. For where [there are] envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like [mere] men?” (1Cor. 3:3 NKJV)

A fellow minister and friend Dr. J. Gordon Henry, who conducts Prayer Seminars for churches and ministries nationally and internationally, laments that most churches fail to have vital prayer ministries because their members are largely “carnal.”

(www.jgordonhenryministries.org)

While I understand what Dr. Henry is saying and lament the same possibility, I think that many, who profess Christianity as their personal Faith, may actually be “carnal,” which means fleshly, in a different sense than it is commonly understood.

The GOP Establishment vs. Grassroots Conservatives

On Saturday, June 21, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal told approximately a thousand evangelical leaders at the annual convention of the Faith and Freedom Coalition that a rebellion is brewing in the U.S with people ready for “a hostile takeover” of the nation’s capital. Jindal hit hardest on President Obama and other Democrats, accusing them of waging a war against religious liberty and education. However, there is also a war within the Republican Party that is becoming more visible and fiercely fought in Republican Congressional primaries.

Johnny Mann PDF Print E-mail

johnny-mann_Page-11I wrote about this artist a few  years ago and last week he left this world for a far better one, so I thought it would be good to take a look back at a friend and fellow artist.

His name is Johnny Mann. Johnny was born in Maryland and spent his childhood there. His mother raised him and his siblings on money received from teaching music, so one would have to believe that Johnny would at some point follow the path of music set by his mother, and follow he did. He learned music as a child and carried that over to his military days by playing in the Air Force Band. This was not just any band but was commissioned to play at special events around the country.

Let Freedom Ring PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mike Scruggs

Let Freedom Ring,
Oh, Great God our King,
Let Freedom Ring!

The lines above are the last three lines of My Country Tis of Thee, which for 100 years was one of three unofficial national anthems of the United States,  until the Star-Spangled Banner was made the official national anthem in 1932. The other was Hail Columbia, written by Philip Phile in 1789 for the inauguration of George Washington. Hail Columbia has since become the Vice-President’s official march. My Country ‘Tis of Thee uses the music of the British national anthem, God Save the Queen, but the American words were composed in Andover, Massachusetts, in 1831 by Samuel Francis Smith. It was first sung on July 4, 1831, at an Independence Day celebration for children on Park Street in Boston.
