Quotes

"It was a huge task to get the repairs done quickly" said Walter Staib, chef of City Tavern located at 2nd and Walnut streets in the Old City section of Philly
"It’s interesting that you can be a founding member of that organization, as Melancton Smith was, and still be a slave owner. That’s the significance of Melancton Smith in terms of abolition history.”"
1774 - The new Continental Congress, the governing body of America’s colonies, passed an order proclaiming that all citizens of the colonies "discountenance and discourage all horse racing and all kinds of gaming, cock fighting, exhibitions of shows, plays and other expensive diversions and entertainment."
From the Journals of the Continental Congress 1774: "..it is an indispensable duty which we owe to God, our country and posterity, by all lawful ways and means  in our power to maintain, defend and preserve these civil and religious rights and liberties for which many of our fathers fought, bled and died, and to hand them down to future generations."   Voting is your duty and your way of defending and preserving your liberty and fanning the flames of that “sacred fire.”
