A study of the war will show that the fight was over states rights more than slavery, and an argument can be made that the wrong side won the war. Government tyranny has exploded since the battle over states’ rights was lost. It has been said that the Gettysburg Address was the most famous speech in American History, but that it would have carried more weight if President Lincoln was referencing the brave Confederate soldiers who were fighting against big-government tyranny. Has there ever been a more Christian general than Robert E. Lee?
But the end of slavery was the by-product of the war; and for that, we can all be grateful. Let us go to Gettysburg and do what President Lincoln prescribed in the conclusion of his speech.
“It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us. . .that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion. . . that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain. . . that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom. . . and that government of the people. . .by the people. . .for the people. . . shall not perish from the earth.”
Please join us in Gettysburg on July 4th for the Gettysburg Racial Reconciliation and Healing of the Races. The event will run from 10:00-3:00 with a meal following. What a perfect historical trip for the entire family.
Pastor Manning and his congregation are spending their weekends visiting major cities on the east coast and are handing out printed invitations to the event to those in the inner city. He is offering free buses and free meals in an attempt to increase the black participation at Gettysburg. They hope to hand-out 500,000 fliers across this nation.
Will you do your part? Will you bring your family to Gettysburg? Our ministry has chartered two large buses that will transport over 100 people to Gettysburg. Could you fill a bus from your town? Would your church and your Pastor get involved?
If you can’t go, would you help Pastor Manning by sending a donation to fund the event. His plan is to raise $350,000 to pay for all of the expenses…buses, food, jumbo-trons, printing. This is a HUGE commitment on his part. Won’t you help him?
Here is a 2 minute video of Pastor Manning explaining the trip:
Here is a video of the logistics:

Go to www.atlah.org for more information. I believe that God has anointed Pastor Manning for this event. Together, we can drive a stake through the heart of the demonic spirit of racism.
