We are excited to announce that a set of the "Foundations of American Law & Government Display"
has been accepted by the Madison County Commissioners
to be hung in the Madison County Government Complex
On October 26th
, the Madison County Commissioners
were presented with the Foundations of American Law and Government display by Senator Ralph Hudgens and his wife Suzanne. Commission Chairman Anthony Dove said, “He and his wife live here in the county, and his wife called and wanted to donate the documents." Madison County will be the 12th county in Georgia to showcase the documents since Gov. Sonny Perdue signed House Bill 941 into law.
The commissioners voted unanimously to accept and display the donation in the Madison County Government Complex. Ten Commandments-Georgia
congratulates Madison County
for making this bold step to take advantage of this new law.
On July 1, 2006
, Gov. Sonny Perdue signed into law H.B. 941 http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2005_06/fulltext/hb941.htm
authorizing local governments to erect historical displays that include a copy of the Ten Commandments. These displays pave the way for communities to further educate their citizens regarding historical facts about our country's founding.
These historical documents are being made available through the ministry of Ten Commandments-GA, Inc. However, TC-GA has never given or placed displays in any government buildings. We serve as a resource for private citizens, churches, civic clubs and organizations to purchase these documents and to present them for approval to their local governing boards, commissions and councils.
TC-GA has beautifully designed to legal specifications the nine piece historical display. You may view these unique designs by logging on to www.thoushalt.org.
The following documents may now be legally posted in local government buildings:
1. The Ten Commandments
2. The Mayflower Compact, 1620
3. The Declaration of Independence
4. Magna Carta
5. 'The Star-Spangled Banner' by Francis Scott Key
6. The National Motto: "In God We Trust"
7. The Preamble to the Georgia Constitution
8. The Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution
9. The description on the image of Lady Justice
These documents may be acquired by contacting TC-GA on the web, by calling 706-376-0154, or by mail at TC-GA, P.O. Box 941, Hartwell, GA 30643. For more information you may contact:
