THE STORY OF PASTOR JAMES CALDWELL

THE STORY OF PASTOR JAMES CALDWELL

This is the second in a series about special Pastors who were part of the “Black Regiment” in the Revolutionary War. We remember them especially this July on the 244th anniversary of the American Declaration of Independence because according to the British army leaders, it was those Pastors in their black robes that caused the greatest army in the World to go down in defeat. It was accomplished by the preaching from their pulpits that motivated Christians to action and by their expertise at recruiting militia and regular army troops for service under General Washington. Some of them were themselves army officers who led their own church-folks into battle.
