Quotational Therapy: Part 10 -- George Washington, On Tyranny.
ON FREE MEN DEFEATING TYRANNY-
George Washington, July 2, 1776 (just two days before the Declaration of Independence), exhorting his troops to greater levels of exertion:
The time is now at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their Houses, and Farms, are to be pillaged and destroyed, and they consigned to a state of Wretchedness from which no human effort will probably deliver them. The fate of unborn Millions will now depend, under God, on the Courage and Conduct of this army.... We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die: Our own Country's Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions-- The eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, and we shall have their blessings, and praises, if happily we are instruments of saving them from the Tyranny mediated against them. Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and shew the whole world, that a Freeman contending for Liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth.
Patriot Sage: George Washington and the American Political Tradition, by Gary L. Gregg II & Matthew Spalding.
