Moravians No. 11: Moravians and the Revolution

Record #:
As the American Revolution drew near, the Moravians were in an impossible position, refusing to take an oath of allegiance and bear arms. Further problems arose from the Moravians' reluctance to accept paper currency, an offense that would make them enemies of the state. Tensions eased with the editing of the oath of allegiance, allowing Moravians to make an affirmation of their loyalty.
