• “Are we of this generation so derelict, have we so little of the blood of our revolutionary fathers coursing through our veins, that we cannot preserve, what they achieved? . . . The world will cry out ‘shame’ upon us, if we show ourselves unworthy, to be the descendants of those great and illustrious…men, who fought for their liberty, and secured it to their posterity, by the Constitution of the United States . . . The Constitution has enemies, secret and professed . . . Friends of the Constitution must rally and unite . . . I hardly know . . . the manner of our political death . . . We shall die no lingering death . . . An earthquake would shake the foundations of the globe, pull down the pillars of heaven, and bury us at once in endless darkness. May I never live, to see that day! May I not survive to hear any apocalyptic angel, crying through the heavens, with such a voice as announced the fall of Babylon.” ~Daniel Webster (1852)
