This document was written and unanimously passed by the Congress of the Confederation of the United States. It was a precursor to the United States Constitution.
In this document I found this interesting quote:
"Religion, morality, and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged."I also found it interesting when I read that General George Washington used to require the troops he commanded to attend religious services during the War of Independence.
But our founding fathers were actually trying to create a secular nation. Riiiiight.
