Founding documents

“What do we mean by the Revolution? The war? That was no part of the revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it. The revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected from 1760 - 1775, in the course of fifteen years, before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington.”


Founding documents

“We have it in our power to begin the world over again. Out of this rabble arise a people who would defy kings.”
