Elias Boudinot not only served as Commissary General of the Prisoners of War during the Revolution,  but was also President of the Continental Congress in 1783 when the Treaty of Paris was signed, officially ending the American Revolution.  He later became a U.S. Representative  and the Director of the U.S. Mint under President George Washington  He is remembered not only known for his service to his country, but also his religious convictions.
Elias was elected to become the first president of the American Bible Society,  which he considered “as the greatest honor that could have been conferred on me this side of the grave.”  When he perceived that Thomas Paine’s book Age of Reason was being marketed to children and the uneducated,  with the purpose to subvert their belief in religion, he, with “an anxious desire that our country should be preserved from the dreadful evil of becoming enemies to the religion of the Gospel,”  wrote The Age of Revelation in defense of Christianity.
Elias also practiced what he believed and gave to many causes that served the less fortunate around him. In one instance, he gave several small houses to a church in Philadelphia to be used as housing for poor women who needed a place to live.  On a different occasion, he bought a tract of land from a widow in need (without even looking at it first). He then wrote to his agent to try to sell the land at a profit, so that he might give the widow the added funds.  A Cherokee Indian, who later became the first editor of a Cherokee/English newspaper and worked with the missionaries to translate sections of the Bible and other religious writings into his own language, took Elias Boudinot’s name in honor of him.  In his will, Elias Boudinot left a great deal of his estate to further the cause of Christianity and assist those in need.
