Tommy Kidd on Lemuel Haynes

Over at the Anxious Bench Blog, Tommy Kidd reminds us of the importance of the black patriot, Lemuel Haynes. I second Tommy's motion to read John Saillant's biography of Haynes, Black Puritan, Black Republican: The Life and Thought of Lemuel Haynes, 1753-1833.

For those of you who want a taste of Haynes, please check out "Godly Government in a Time of Crisis" (pp. 390-95), in my Early Evangelicalism: A Reader, which includes a brief introduction to Haynes and excerpts from his Influence of Civil Government on Religion (1798).
