Selection from President Coolidge’s Address dedicating a monument of General George Gordon Meade

Washington, D.C., October 19, 1927

“Throughout his life General Meade was a man of deep religious conviction. When he entered the service he said, “I go into the field…trusting to God to dispose of my life and actions in accordance with my daily prayer that His will, not mine, shall be done.” Throughout his entire military career he constantly acted in harmony with that sentiment. Time and again, in his letters and statements, he acknowledged his dependence upon Divine Providence.”
