From the Annals of Very Bad Timing

This may be hard to read, but it’s the cover of the January 1914 of the Luther League Review, the publication of the Luther League, the youth organization of (I believe) the United Lutheran Church in America. Those would be the non-Missouri Synod German Lutherans.

The January issue featured a short but glowing profile of Kaiser Wilhelm II. Especially the role faith played in his life.

You will be happy to know, by 1919, this magazine was regularly featuring American flags and patriotic symbols on its cover. I’m surprised any copies of this issue survived.
