James McHenry: Sir, you will be known as an early American statesman. You were a signer of the United States Constitution from Maryland and the namesake of Fort McHenry and was a delegate to the Continental Congress from Maryland, and the third United States Secretary of War (17961800), under the first and second presidents, George Washington and John Adams. President Washington appointed you to be Secretary of War in 1796 and immediately assigned you the task of facilitating the transition of Western military posts from Great Britain's control to that of the United States, under the terms of the Jay Treaty. You also advised the senate committee against reducing military forces. You were instrumental in reorganizing the army into one of four regiments of infantry, a troop of dragoons, and a battery of artillery.Famously you was credited of establishing the Department of the Navy, based on your recommendation that the "War Department should be assisted by a commissioner of marine." on March 8, 1798.During President John Adams's first administration, Adams also appointed you as Secretary of War, so Adams had decided to keep the cabinet intact. There was no precedent to follow in the new government. Adams gradually found that three members of the cabinet: you, Pickering (the Secretary of State), and Oliver Wolcott (the Secretary of the Treasury), became a drag on his administration and programs. Thanks for everything in early American Presidential history, may you rest in peace!

Our current government is dragging us down and taking away our liberties. Can you talk to God to have him help us out? Rest in peace and God bless.
