Emerging Revolutionary War wishes everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day remembrance.
Beginning with the sacrifices of the soldiers in the American Revolution to the present day, let us take a moment for all those who made that ultimate sacrifice and whose remains lay in unknown graves scattered throughout the country and globe.
In conclusion, John Stark, former general in the American Revolution, in a written announcement commemorating the anniversary of the Battle of Bennington wrote;
“Live free or die; Death is not the worst of evils.”
Thank you to all those who have fallen so we can have the chance to live free.
