Historical Display Goes Up in Lee County
We are excited to announce that a set of the “Foundations of American Law & Government Display” has been accepted by the Lee County Commissioners to be hung in the Lee County Courthouse.
On February 28, the Lee County Commissioners were presented with the Foundations of American Law and Government display by the First Baptist Church of Leesburg, pastored by Rev. Bobby Harrell. The commissioners voted to accept and display the donation in the Lee County Courthouse.
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These historical documents are being made available through the ministry of Ten Commandments-GA, Inc. We serve as a resource for private citizens, churches, civic clubs, and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:
