“Well, you may be as patient and accommodating as you like, Doctor.  For myself, I will not voluntarily put on the chains of France while I am struggling to throw off those of Great Britain!”

“It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more. You will think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not.”  ~ John Adams, letter to Abigail Adams, July 3, 1776

OH, HE’D LIKE THAT WOULDN’T HE

OF COURSE, AS AN EX-ART MAJOR TURNED HISTORY MAJOR, THIS IS MY NEW JOB.

I shrieked out loud.  I WANT TO SEE JEFFERSON DRAWN LIKE ONE OF THOSE FRENCH GIRLS!

 Is it wrong that I just imagined Jefferson saying that to Adams who is standing there just out of frame?
