Finished 1776 and Sobbed Like a Baby

What a price these dear people paid for our freedom. I am so inspired by George Washington's life and my next 4th of July book will be a biography of George Washington!

I love this quotation from John Adams that he includes on p. 180:

"We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
