Here’s an article in Baptist Press by Stephen Douglas Wilson that lists 5 important turning points in US history that we all should be thankful for:

“5 junctures in U.S. history for which we can be thankful”

Here’s the 5 that he lists:

1. The founding and settlement of the American colonies by religious dissenters.

2. The American Revolution and constitutional guarantees of freedom.

3. The preservation of the American state and the Civil War.

4. The defeat of the Axis powers in World War II.

5. The great economic expansion of the late 20th century.

It is hard to argue with these 5 especially when you read Wilson’s reasons for including them. However just for fun add to this list (in comments) any turning points in American history that you believe are just as important that we may also be thankful for.

Here’s my contribution:

‘The Great Awakenings’ along with all of the minor revivals that have helped to provide the strong religious foundation that contributed to the rise of America as a great nation.             *Top
