"The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under 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."
Address to the Continental Army before the Battle of Long Island (27 August 1776)
"Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair; the rest is in the hands of God."
