The Blood of Freemen Who Fight for Their Country

in by Warren, top 20 quotes

Date:  August 24, 1774

“Our enemies, we know, will use every artifice that hell can suggest and human power can execute to enslave us; but we are determined not to submit. We choose to effect our salvation from bondage by policy, rather than by arms; considering that the blood of free men who fight for their country is of more value than the blood of a soldiery who fight for pay.”
