Sunday Battles

The Parish Visitor records the fact, that, in every modern battle which has been fought on Sunday, the attacking party has not only been defeated, but generally disgracefully routed and panic stricken, without any apparent cause.  The following are instances: Perry’s victory on Lake Erie, McDonough’s victory on Lake Champlain, the battle of New Orleans, the battle of Waterloo, the battle of Bull Run, and the Battle of Mill Spring.
