LINCOLN'S FAVORITE PAINTING - THE VISION OF GEORGE WASHINGTON

My wife turned me onto this interview.  I think it is great stuff if you have the time.  We set up the computer to live-stream thru the computer onto a big-screen and surround sound system in the great room, so she can listen to this stuff while she works at home.  One of the best things we have done in a place where there is no tv:

In it, this fellow (who appears to be a godly man) talks of Lincoln's favorite painting that was over his bed in Pullman Car One (the predecessor to Air Force One....).  While I have my issues with Lincoln as a President (not as a man), I present this as further evidence that the vision is and was a real thing (and was purportedly of Moroni coming to George Washington in his hour of distress and need) - and further that it was a stamp of approval on Lincoln's mission to unite the US (even by blood) and bring it back together to fulfill it's destiny to take the gospel to the all nations and to be the nursing mother of Israel and so much else (fighting back Germany and then Russia - as they drove the Jews within their borders to their homeland).  I believe it was so important to Lincoln - because of the comfort which he derived from it (knowing the cause of the North was just) and also, because he was IN the vision as a key player (or his role).

Here is the picture:

This was at the Union Pacific RR museum.  It is now the newest thing on my bucket list to go see it - and find out more about it's background, and the painter that was inspired by something to paint it.  Remember that the first thing that was recorded on this subject was in 1857 in a military museum.  I have a friend of a friend who was a lobbyist in DC for Boeing, and a solid historian, who traced it back to the first copy he could find in the Stars and Stripes in an 1857 edition in the Library of Congress.

Remember, when I first heard of this vision, it was through the gift of tongues giving me something that I heard the 2nd Counselor of my Stake Presidency say - but that he had no knowledge of when I asked him.  I have shared that before on the blog.
