“The Time Is Near At Hand…”


“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine
whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves;
whether they are to have any property they can call their own;
whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed, and themselves consigned to a state of wretchedness
from which no human efforts will deliver them.
The fate of unborn millions will now depend on God,
on the courage and conduct of this army.
Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only
the choice of brave resistance,
or the most abject submission.
We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die.”

~George Washington
