The Magnificent Fifty: Foundation of Faith (Idaho)

Boise, Idaho (Artist: Susan Cassidy Wilhoit)

Constitution Preamble (1889)

We, the people of the State of Idaho, grateful to Almighty God for our freedom, to secure its blessings.

Folks, I hope this series of posts is opening a few eyes. The whole point is to counter the idea that our nation (and states) were founded on “godless” principles. To the contrary, these posts featuring The Magnificent Fifty: Foundation of Faith art collection at Bryan College show that faith – not godlessness – was very much a part of the fiber of our nation. To deny this exposes one of two things: an ignorance of history, or the willful desire to rewrite it.
