“I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in Providence for the illumination of the ignorant, and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.” (John Adams)

All historians agree that a most singular and important feature of the settlers of America was their overpowering sense of mission—a conviction that they were taking part in the unfolding of a manifest destiny of divine design which would shower its blessings on all mankind. As historian John Fiske writes: “They believed that they were doing a wonderful thing. They felt themselves to instruments in accomplishing a kind of “manifest destiny.” Their exodus [from Europe] was that of a chosen people who were at length to lay the everlasting foundations of God’s kingdom upon earth…. This steadfast faith in an unseen ruler and guide was to them a pillar of cloud by day and of fire by night. It was of great moral value. It gave them clearness of purpose and concentration of strength, and contributed towards making them, like the children of Israel, a people of indestructible vitality and aggressive energy.”

As John Adams wrote from England while the Constitution was in preparation: “The people of America have now the best opportunity and the greatest trust in their hands that Providence ever committed to so small a number.” Alexander Hamilton emphasized the same point as the Constitution was presented to the people for their approval. He wrote: “It has been frequently remarked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the  important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend for their political constitutions on accident and force.
