The President's Desk
PART OF SIR EDWARD BELCHERíS SHIP
IS NOW PRESIDENT BUSHíS DESK
According to a news report, President George W. Bush has decided to keep the "Resolute" desk as his Presidential desk in the Oval Office. The desk was made from material taken from the British ship Resolute, which in 1852 was one of the ships commanded by Admiral Sir Edward Belcher (1799-1877) of the British Royal Navy during his search for the Northwest Passage.
For the complete story of the connection between the H.M.S. Resoluteís
commander, Sir Edward Belcher (including the story of his role in the discovery
of the fabled Northwest Passage), the Presidentís Resolute Desk, the Great Seal
of the United States, the Constitution of the United States, and the rule of
Godís moral law (including the story of how moral law principles are symbolized by the Great
Seal of the United States, designed by William Barton and patterned after
Governor Jonathan Belcherís coat of arms), see this book (available for sale
