Colonel Eugene Nelson Sanctuary (November 6, 1870 - March 10, 1957)[1] was a retired US Army Reserve officer and a defendant in the Great Sedition Trial of 1944. He was defended by an anti-communist Jewish attorney, Henry H. Klein.

Sanctuary was born in in Hinesburgh, Vermont in 1870. He was a graduate from the University of Vermont.[2] Before the First World War he was a civil engineer for Montpelier, Vermont.[3] He served in Russia during the war working with the Russian Railway Service Corps. During this time he was a witness to the Bolshevik Revolution.[4]

Sanctuary headed a lobbying group called American Christian Defenders and accused President Franklin Roosevelt of conspiring to create “a Jewish state where only Jews will own property and reap profits.”[5]

He was a regular contributor to Reverend Gerald Winrod’s publication The Defender.[6] He issued his literature under the name World Alliance Against Jewish Aggressiveness and later the imprint Tocsin Publishers.

Sanctuary had written close to five hundred sacred and patriotic songs including, "Uncle Sam We Are Standing By You" and "A Klansman's Song." He was laymen in the Presbyterian Church.
