Written for those who wish to understand the impact upon the country before the Revolution of those brave men who spoke from the pulpit. Massachusetts is the site for these sermons where many men spoke the words that became a part of our Constitution. Church and State were integrally part of the eventual decision to draw the line based on a principle, that England could regulate exterior trade, but not interior. The Tax Law did not cost the colonists much, but that they were subjected to frivolous laws brought the pastors, preachers, deacons, and patriots to draw the line in the sand. Wonder where the term "on a shining hill" came from? Read where the simple Election Sermons made the language of freedom ring.
