Joseph Warren Quote

“Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired of. Our enemies are numerous and powerful; but we have many friends, determined to be free, and heaven and earth will aid our resolution. On you depends the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important question, on which rest the happiness and liberty of millions yet unborn. Act worthy of yourselves.”

Dr. Joseph Warren (from his 1775 5th Anniversary Boston Massacre Oration)
