A Little Book of Revolutionary Quotes: Virtue, Valor, & Vice
Power corrupted individuals with a base nature fast, leading them to embrace all kinds of vices. The only means to counteract vice was through virtuous people who were willing to fight with valor against the horrors of a corrupt government. The Founding Generation was always suspicious of too much power in the hands of the unvirtuous. Through their words, they communicated the importance of virtue over vice and continue to remind us that a nation run by people who lack virtue is a nation in name only. Quotes from George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and more.
A Little Book of Revolutionary Quotes: Tyranny, Taxes, & Treason
Sugar Act. Currency Act. Quartering Act. Stamp Act. Declaratory Act. Townshend Acts. Tea Act. Intolerable Acts. Great Britain just wanted what was fair: Money to support their efforts in helping the American colonies.
The Founding Generation understood too that Great Britain wanted something: Control. Control over the colonies. Control over the colonists. Over time, the unheeded requests and petitions of the colonists to Great Britain over grievances produced a forceful backlash. No taxation without representation became the rallying cry for the colonists confronted by the British Tyrant. In the end, the day of reckoning came and propelled the ultimate division. If it was once considered treason to speak against the King of England, the separation made it treason to speak against America. Quotes from George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and more.
