1830 A Plea for the Sabbath-School System of the Gettysburg Sunday-School
This is an original pamphlet of 'A Plea for the Sabbath-School System Delivered Feb 2, 1830, At The Anniversary of the Gettysburg Sunday-School', by S. S. Schmucker, Professor of Christian Theology n the Theological Seminary at Gettysburg. It was published by the theological Students and other teachers of said school. Printed in Gettysburg At The Press Of The Theological Seminary. Before Gettysburg became famous during the Civil War, it was a sleepy little town at the bottom middle of the state of Pennsylvania.
This pamphlet is a plea for the making sure the Sabbath-School system endures and receives the funding necessary to keep the school running. They are contemplating forming a County Union , an auxiliary to the American Sunday-School Union.
What makes this so interesting is that this was basically given as a sermon without notes by S. S. Schmucker who was a professor of Christian Theology at the Theological Seminary of Gettysburg. After giving the sermon, he was approached by students and attendees to allow them to print his sermon but he declined because it was not written down and he did not want to appear before the public. Several weeks later, he was approached again and this time agreed to write down what he remembered of his sermon so his words could be used to forward the 'noble cause of sabbath-schools. An interesting little pamphlet on the religious health of a little town called Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Its thread binding is long gone and the pages are separated but they are all there and this 186 year old pamphlet is very easy to read.
