VIVA LA REVOLUTION!
"Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may
take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
“Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say 'what should be the reward of such sacrifices?' Bid us and our posterity bow the
knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our
blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of
freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you,
and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!”
