Thomas Jefferson – His Wife Martha

“I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me.” Song of Solomon 7:10 KJV

John F Kennedy – Navy and PT Boat Experiences

““…And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” Job 1:21 KJV

The Navy had the perfect place for these rich, young kids. As he started to head for the shore, one of the crew expressed his fear that they wouldn’t make it. Personally, I’m thankfully for the hopeful souls….

James Garfield – His Death

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23 KJV

“Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.” Deuteronomy 32:38 KJV

William Henry Harrison – The Curse of Tecumseh

“And they set the ark of God upon a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab that was in Gibeah: and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, drave the new cart.” 2 Samuel 6:3 KJV
