"Brig. Gen. Bisbee Dies at Age 102.
"Oldest Retired Army Officer of Nation.
"Fought in 4 Wars Beginning with the Civil.
"In Indian Campaigns Also"
"His First Commission Signed by Lincoln.
"A Soldier for 41 Years at His Retirement.
"BROOKLINE, MASS., June 11 (AP) oldest retired American Army officer, died today in his home here at the age of 102.
"The Helath of the veteran of four conflicts, The Civil, Indian and Spanish-American wars and the Phillipines Insurrection, had failed rapidly since he suffered a heart attack several weeks ago.
"Shortly before his death, the old campaigner's many years in the Army were termed "an inspiration to the soldiers who fight for democracy today," by General George C. Marshall, U.S. Army Chief of Staff, who upon learning of General Bisbee's illnes wired: "Your expression of confidence that the democracies will emerge victorious from this great strutggle is characteristic of a brilliant soldier who gave so many years in the service of his country."
"General Bisbee had been a soldier with the late Major Gen. Arthur MacArthur, father of the hero of the Philipppines, and he kept in close touch in recent months with the developments on battlefields he know of old by having leading articles read to him.
"During his 102d birthday interview he waved aside discussion of present-day military affairs, preferring to leave that subject to "those better qualified than myself."
"General Bisbee left a son, Raymond B. Bisbee of Albany, N.Y., and a daughter Mrs. Thomas Fefel of Baltimore. Another son, Eugene Shade Bisbee, for many years a New York newspaper man, died in 1933.

6869 Wyoming's Kingdom Crusader Josiah Strong 1847-1916

On a cold night in 1873, the town of Cheyenne, Wyoming, was set afire. The arsonists were the town's former brothel-keepers, who had been forced out of business by Pastor Josiah Strong's call for a moral cleanup. The flames did nothing to melt Strong's resolve.

Strong had been just a greenhorn graduate of Cincinnati's Lane Theological Seminary when he married Alice Bisbee on August 29, 1871. Ten days later, the newlyweds were setting up house in Cheyenne, where Strong was ordained and installed as pastor of a Congregational church. He stayed long enough to lead the anti-prostitution crusade (and suffer the consequences mentioned above), but he soon headed back east to take a chaplaincy at Western Reserve College in Ohio.

As the years passed, Strong's passion for societal reform grew. In 1885 he published his most famous and influential book, Our Country. By 1916 it had sold over 125,000 copies. The book drew heavily on his western experience but also recalled the ideals of his Puritan ancestors. He challenged the nation and the church to transform society with biblical principles and thereby establish the Kingdom of God on earth.

"Free institutions are safe only when the great majority of the people have that reverence for law which can spring only from reverence for God," he wrote. "The most striking defect of young America is the lack of reverence." To remedy this, he exhorted the church to roll up its sleeves, work hard, pray always, and seize the day for Jesus Christ.

After the initial success of Our Country, Strong dedicated himself fully to biblical social reform, first in America and then in Britain and in South America. His efforts gave birth to the "Safety First" movement, the American Institute for Social Service (and its British counterpart), and the Federal Council of Churches in America.

Mark Ammerman is author of The Rain From God, The Ransom, and The Longshot (all Horizon Books), a historical fiction series set in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century New England.
