James White's Appeal

09 May 1865

And what was the significance of an act of Congress that directed that all new dies made at the United States Mint were to bear the motto "In God We Trust"?

The favorable trend led James White to appeal to the church:

The holding of the winds, in the suppression of the rebellion, outstripping even our faith in the suddenness of its execution, is opening a wide door before us. Let the thousands of Sabbathkeepers whose prayer ascended two months since for the speedy accomplishment of this work, now so signally answered, again ascend that the great Captain of the Lord's host will meet with His people (ibid., May 9, 1865).
