"Truly the old landmark once stood, and having fallen, it was deemed proper to reset it." (The Baptist Encyclopedia, 1881, p. 868.)
"[T]here are many elements in Baptist history which bear an obvious and direct relationship to the tenets of the Landmark system and which clearly demonstrate that the architects of the movement, "the Great Triumvirate," were building on a foundation in Baptist life which was already laid." LeRoy B. Hogue, "The Antecedents of Landmarkism"
