Reed, niece of a signer of the Declaration of Independence, authored this amazing work for the ASSU prior to 1850. Originally translated into over 20 languages within a few years, the book was among the most widely-read biographies of Washington of the time.The ASSU, now called American Missionary Fellowship (AMF), has been associated with some of Americas most prominent citizens and religious leaders. Bushrod Washington, George Washingtons nephew and heir of Mount Vernon, who served as Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court, was vice-president of the ASSU until his death in 1829. Included among other ASSU officers or influenced by its mission were Bishop William White of Philadelphias Christ Church- Francis Scott Key, who wrote The Star Spangled Banner- D.L. Moody- Laura Ingalls Wilder- and John Adams (related to both early American presidents), who personally organized over 320 Sunday schools.ASSU missionaries carried books published by the mission in saddlebags to leave with the fledgling Sunday schools they had started, promoting literacy, education, and the very best in Christian moral values. Though it stopped publishing books in 1968, American Missionary Fellowship continues its missionary work in the United States, extending beyond Sunday school work to include church planting, church camps, and numerous other programs.
