Homeschool Resource of the Day: The Soldier's Pocket Bible

The Soldiers' Pocket Bible (PDF ebook)

The Soldier's Pocket Bible is a booklet/tract that was first issued by Oliver Cromwell in 1643 during the English Civil War for the use of the Commonwealth Army. The little book consists of Bible passages, arranged topically, which might be of most help to a soldier. It was later re-issued in 1861 at the very beginning of the American Civil War, an exact reproduction (with only some spelling changes) of the 1643 edition. The quote on the title page, "Trust in the Lord and keep your powder dry," was Oliver Cromwell's famous battle cry to his troops.
