What Congress Should Remember

"Let this happy day give birth to an American Republic.
Let her arise not to devastate and to conquer,
but to re-establish the reign of peace and of law.
The eyes of Europe are fixed upon us.
She demands of us a living example of freedom
that may exhibit a contrast, in the felicity of the citizen,
to the ever increasing tyranny."
                                                                       Continental Congress
                                                                        Richard Henry Lee
