Two strangely connected events that occurred in 1865 greatly impact American lives even today.

1) General William Booth founded the Salvation Army and now millions are fed, clothed and given shelter in the name of Jesus. As Booth proclaims "A heart to God and a hand to man".

2) The other event involved another man named Booth (a distant cousin to William) his name John Wilks Booth who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln.

One cousin blessed a nation the other cursed it.

The Gospel makes a difference.
