Liberty!—the cry of the human heart! Every nation and people have sought it, but none has enjoyed a fuller measure than America.
Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.
— George Washington
Americans have faithfully transmitted the unique precepts of American liberty from generation to generation, and this book recaptures nine of the greatest early American orations about the blessings and responsibilities of liberty. These orations were delivered by some of America’s greatest orators: John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, Samuel Davies, George Bancroft, Noah Webster, and others.
God grants liberty only to those who love it and are always ready to guard and defend it.
— Daniel Webster
These timeless orations are once again available and speak directly to the hearts of today’s citizens!
