Brushfires of Freedom

Minute Man, c.1929 by Joseph Christian Leyendecker
Minute Man, c.1929

"Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us."
~Thomas Jefferson (Declaration of the Causes and Necessities of Taking up Arms, 6 July 1775)

"It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."
~Samuel Adams "The Father of the American Revolution"
