Declaration of Independence Close Up
“While most nations trace their origin to barbarians, the foundations of our nation were laid by civilized men, by Christians. … The memory of our fathers should be the watchword of liberty throughout the land; for, imperfect as they were, the world before had not seen their like, nor will it soon, we fear, behold their like again. Such models of moral excellence, such apostles of civil and religious liberty. … To ridicule them is national suicide.” McGuffey’s Eclectic Sixth Reader (1907)
