Respected historian Dr. Marshall Foster of www.worldhistoryinstitute.com discusses the Magna Carta, June 15, 1215 as it turns 800 years old. What it meant then and still signifies today. Did you know it was revered as a sacred document with scriptural foundations? That it was the first written restrictions on the powers of government? That the freedoms and liberties expressed in the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence are extensions of the Magna Carta, and said to be thoroughly Christian? That our Founders weren’t rebelling against England they were preserving the individual liberties enshrined in this early document signed by King John at Runnymede, June 15, 1215.
