I'm not much of a history buff or expert, although as I get older I like to dabble more into it. I usually do not start posts, but just reply to them. However, since this is the history section, I wanted to start a topic (and see wherever it may go) about a forgotten woman in history. For 30-some years since I was a young teenager, I felt a sort of kinship to a certain First Lady of the United States. As a matter of fact, this is so strong a feeling that some of my non-Christian friends think I'm "reincarnated" from someone who knew her. Of course that is rediculous but this person was a sister in Christ as far as I am concerned. Her name is Jane Means Appleton Pierce, the wife of the 14th President of the United States--- read her tragic story as First Lady if you never have. I always felt sorry for her (although I understand she is with the Lord now). I'll leave the details for your research since this is not the place to repeat what history already stated. However, in spite of her terrible losses (of all her children), the FIRST thing she did upon her deathbed in her will was to leave a generous portion of her estate to the American Bible Society and other missions. I have nothing but great admiration for such a person as I would not have been able to do the same in her circumstances. I already devoted an article on my site to her with my KJV Bible download since she wanted the Word of God spread everywhere. Next to my passion for the things and teaching of the Bible and the Lord, I try to exalt this forgotten woman as much as I can. I do not understand my motivation other than to say maybe this is the Lord's doing for recognition of a wonderful person long past due.
