The Glorious Cause – A Freeman

Friday, February 26, 2010
“Never was a cause more important or glorious than that which you are engaged in; not only your wives, your children, and distant posterity, but humanity at large, the world of mankind, are interested in it; for if tyranny should prevail in this great country, we may expect liberty will expire throughout the world. Therefore, more human glory and happiness may depend upon your exertions than ever yet depended upon any of the sons of men. He that is a soldier in defense of such a cause, needs no title; his post is a post of honor, and although not an empower, yet he shall wear a crown — of glory — and blessed will be his memory!” (The Glorious Cause – A Freeman; appearing in the New England Chronicle, maybe December 1775)
