    Excerpt from The Light in the Clouds: A Thanksgiving Discourse, Delivered Before the United Congregations of the Reformed Dutch, First Presbyterian and Westminster Churches of Utica, N. Y., November 27, 1862, in the Reformed Dutch Church

    He has declared that He will make the wrath of man to praise Him, and it is true that those things which we most highly prize on earth, and for which the gratitude of our hearts oftenest goes up to the great Father, have been heralded in by the rush of armies and the clash of arms. The introduction of Christianity itself was on this fashion: Alexander first conquering the world to give it a language in which to utter the spiritual thought of the New Testament, and the iron Romans coming after, to rivet the nations under one abiding sovereignty, which should hold them quiet till the heralds of the Cross could go forth and scatter upon the blood-soaked soil the good seed of the kingdom.

    This general remark has been singularly illustrated in the great wars of our own country. This is a new continent yet, but we have already had upon it three eras of war previous to the present struggle. And in each of them God has sent a great blessing upon the land. First came the era of the Indian wars, opening with slight collisions between detached tribes and individual set tlements, but gradually assuming more formidable proportions, until the aboriginal paganism of the continent was combined in one grand effort to exterminate all Christian civilization from these shores. These Opposing elements were matched against each other in deadly strife, and more than once the advantage seemed to be with the savage. But God so ordered that here Christian civilization was maintained. And in those wars it was settled once for all that this magnificent heritage should pass into the hands of a people who would improve it, and plant upon it His church and kingdom. I know that wrongs were committed in those Indian wars, but as to the great issue now stated, the wrong was upon the head of the savage, andhe accordingly went down.
