The Black Robed Regiment

Did you know the Lexington Minutemen were led by the local Pastor and a Deacon?

There is a lot about the richness of Christianity in America that you haven’t been taught.
On opening night of the America at the Crossroads Conference, 37-year pastor and history buff Dan Fisher gave his hour long theatrical and interactive presentation on The Black Robed Regiment. A Boston Tory Magistrate named Peter Oliver coined the term “black regiment” in describing the Patriot Pastors who led in the fight to maintain “civil AND religious liberty.” Every Sunday they ascended into their pulpits dressed in their black clerical robes and stirred the hearts of their congregations to fight for liberty!
We invite you to enjoy this most entertaining history lesson demonstrating the influence the Pulpit had in America’s framing!
