"The arms we have been compelled by our enemies to assume we will, in defiance of every hazard, with unabating firmness and perseverance, employ for the preservation of our liberties being with one mind resolved to die free rather than live slaves."
Thomas Jefferson, 1775

"In war, resolution; in defeat, defiance; in victory, magnanimity; in peace, good will."
Edward Marsh
