"everybody is somebody and Jesus is lord of us all"

"There are only 2 kinds of people in the world: sinners and sinners with a Savior" Mack Wayne Craig (1925-2011)

Only 2 defining forces have ever offered to die for you: Jesus Christ and the American G.I. One died for your soul; the other for your freedom.

 for the Lord, not men..." - Col. 3:23

My final Modern History class before it transitions to Western Civ. Dual Credit in 2014-15. This class in 2013-14 was one of the best I have ever taught.









DID  YOU  KNOW?  Professor Donald Lutz  at the University of Houston counted 3, 154 citations in 15,000 writings of the Founding Fathers and found that approximately 1, 100 references are to the Bible and only 300 each to Montesquieu and Blackstone. Locke, Hume, and Plutarch followed at a considerable distance!  Yes, there is an undeniable link between Christian faith and political freedom!   This fact is from Michael Novak's On Two Wings:  Humble Faith and Common Sense at the American Founding.




Dr. Hagewood was the state winner of the annual "Outstanding Teacher of American History" Award, sponsored by the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution.  The award was presented in Memphis on March 11, 2000, at the D.A.R.'s state convention.  Presenting the award is Mrs. Patricia Schonhoff,  State Historian of the D.A.R.
