The Birth of a Nation

“Thomas Jefferson tells that on the day of our nation’s birth in the little hall in Philadelphia, debate had raged for hours. The men gathered there where honorable men hard-pressed by a king who had flouted the very laws they were willing to obey. Even so, to sign a Declaration of Independence was such an irretrievable act that the walls resounded with the words “Treason, the Gallows, the Headsman’s axe” and the issue remained in doubt. Then a man rose and spoke, Jefferson described him as not a young man, but one who had to summon all his energy for an impassioned plea. He cited the grievances that had brought them to this moment and finally, his voice failing he said, “They may turn every tree into a gallows, every home into a grave, yet the words of that parchment can never die. To the mechanic in the workshop, they speak hope; to the slave in the mines, freedom. Sign that parchment! Sign it if the next moment the noose is around your neck, for that parchment will be the textbook of freedom, the Bible of the rights of man forever.” He fell back in his chair exhausted. The 56 delegates swept up by his eloquence, rushed forward and signed a document destined to be as immortal as a work of man can be. When they turned to thank him for his timely oratory, he was not to be found, nor was any to be found who knew who he was or how he had come in or gone out through the locked and guarded door. Fifty six men, a little band so unique we have never seen the like since, had pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.” Ronald Reagan- Gov. of California excerpt of a speech Oct 12, 1968 in Seattle.
