David Low Dodge: War Inconsistent with the Religion of Jesus Christ

To David Low Dodge (1774-1852) belongs the high honor of having written the first pamphlets published in America directed expressly against the war system, and of having founded the first peace society ever organized in America or in the world. His first pamphlet, The Mediator’s Kingdom not of this World, was published in 1809 and is included here as well. His second and more important pamphlet, War Inconsistent with the Religion of Jesus Christ, was prepared for the press in 1812, but its publication was delayed until 1815 due to America’s war with Great Britain. In August of that year the New York Peace Society, the first in the world, was organized, with Mr. Dodge as its president.
