Excerpt from Footprints of the Centuries
History is the brilliant searchlight revealing to us the Past; and by the light of the Lamp of the Past we read the future.
We are following the trail of centuries passed into history, enjoying the goodly heritage bequeathed by our fathers. America's fair possessions, her broad realms of beauty, still undimmed by lapse of years, the fathers and mothers-won through blood, toil and tears.
They cleared highways for the millions then unborn, From the midnight of oppression to the dawn of Freedom's morn.
Inspired by grateful memories we seek to pene trate the veil of the past, that we may catch new inspiration from the story of the struggles and achievements of heroic days.
