"God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever. Commerce between master and slave is despotism. Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free. Establish a law for educating the common people. This it is the business of the state and on a general plan." Original Passages: "But let them [members of the parliament of Great Britain] not think to exclude us from going to other markets to dispose of those commodities which they cannot use, or to supply those wants which they cannot supply. Still less let it be proposed that our properties within our own territories shall be taxed or regulated by any power on earth but our own. The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time; the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them." -- "A Summary View of the Rights of British America" "For in a warm climate, no man will labour for himself who can make another labour for him. This is so true, that of the proprietors of slaves a very small proportion indeed are ever seen to labor. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever . . . ." -- Notes on the State of Virginia "The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it. . . ." -- Notes on the State of Virginia "Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free. Nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government. Nature, habit, opinion has drawn indelible lines of distinction between them." -- The Autobiography "Preach, my dear sir, a crusade against ignorance; establish & improve the law for educating the common people." -- to George Wythe, August 13, 1780? "It is an axiom in my mind that our liberty can never be safe but in the hands of the people themselves, and that too of the people with a certain degree of instruction. This it is the business of the state to effect, and on a general plan." -- to George Washington, January 4, 1786 The Thomas Jefferson Memorial, situated in West Potomac Park on the shore of the Tidal Basin of the Potomac River, is dedicated to Thomas Jefferson, an American Founding Father and the third president of the United States. Officially dedicated on April 13, 1943--the 200th anniversary of Jefferson's birthday, the Jefferson Memorial is one of the last American public monuments in the Beaux-Arts tradition. The neoclassical building was designed by John Russell Pope, but the cornerstone wasn't laid until November 15, 1939--2 years after his death. Daniel P. Higgins and Otto R. Eggers took over construction, and with Philadelphia contractor John McShain, completed the memorial four years later. Composed of circular marble steps, a portico, a circular colonnade of Ionic order columns, and a shallow dome, the building is open to the elements. Pope's design reflects characteristics of the Roman Pantheon, as well as Jefferson's own design for Monticello and the Rotunda at the University of West Virginia. The memorial was constructed with Danby Imperial marble (Vermont) for the exterior walls and columns, Tennessee pink marble for the interior floor, Georgian white marble for the interior wall panels, and Missouri gray marble for the pedestal. Indiana limestone was used in construction of the ceiling. The cost of construction was slightly more than $3 million. The 19-foot, 10,000-pound heroic bronze statue of Jefferson, resting on a 6-foot pedestal of black Minnesota granite, by sculptor Rudulph Evans was added to the center of the memorial room in 1947. Evans was chosen from more than 100 who participated in a nationwide competition conducted by the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Commission. Adolph A. Weinman's sculpture of the five members of the Declaration of Independence drafting committee submitting their report to Congress is featured on the triangular pediment. The interior walls are engraved in bronze with passages from Jefferson's writings. Most prominent are the words, taken from from a September 23, 1800, letter to Dr. Benjamin Rush, which are inscribed in a frieze below the dome: "I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."

Chatham T. Ewing
Chatham T. Ewing
(Ewing's Battery) 1st West Virginia Light Artillery The Chanute Blade, July 22, 1892 CAPTAIN C. T. EWING DEAD. The announcement reached this city today that Captain C. T. Ewing had died at 3:50 o'clock this morning at his home in Thayer. The Captain had been confined to his home but a few weeks by the illness that this morning ended fatally. The community was shocked when the news was received. Captain Ewing was a gallant soldier in the late war for the union. He was captain of a light artillery corps, and volunteered in West Virginia. The corps was called the Ewing battery after the brave young captain of the company. Captain C. T. Ewing was born at New Lisbon, Ohio, January 30th, 1839, where his father was a distinguished lawyer. Later his father removed to Pittsburg, P.A. retiring from the practice of law with a competence. His father died at the breaking out of the war and the young man like many other brave young men of his time volunteered to serve the nation and aid in quelling the rebellion. In a conflict with the enemy in West Virginia he was severely wounded on the field and was taken prisoner by the rebels. An exchange of prisoners was made and the young captain was released and returned to his home in Pittsburg. As soon as possible, he returned to his post and again battled with his enemies of the South. After the war he moved to Iowa, and from there in 1870 to Thayer, Kan. where he has since resided. Here in April 1871 he started the Headlight a good republican paper. He sold out in 1876 and the paper was removed to Erie. In a month after its removal he had purchased new material and in May 1876 published the Thayer Headlight in which he has up to present advocated straight republicanism. He married the Daughter of Judge Benjamin Wheeler of Zanesville, Ohio, who survives him. Four children blessed the union, Etta, Mary, Ellen and Bessie who las month married Mr. Harry Carnie a young business man of Kansas City. Mrs. Capt. G. W. Johnston of this city is a sister of the captain's. No man has passed away in this county for many years as highly esteemed by his fellow citizens as Captain C. T. Ewing. He has done more than any one man to upbuild the town of Thayer and many institutions in southeastern Kansas are the result of his enterprise and of firm unfaltering faith in the growth of the towns of this section. He was perhaps over confident in many of his investments and there can be no doubt that financial reverses hastened the death which all who have known him today deplore. The funeral is announced for 5 o'clock tomorrow afternoon from his late residence.

Anne Orthwood's Bastard: Sex and Law in Early Virginia
In 1663, an indentured servant, Anne Orthwood, was impregnated with twins in a tavern in Northampton County, Virginia. Orthwood died soon after giving birth; one of the twins, Jasper, survived. Orthwood's illegitimate pregnancy sparked four related cases that came before the Northampton magistrates -- who coincidentally held court in the same tavern -- between 1664 and 1686. These interrelated cases and the decisions rendered in them are notable for the ways in which the Virginia colonists modified English common law traditions and began to create their own, as well as what they reveal about cultural and economic values in an Eastern shore community. Through these cases, the very reasons legal systems are created are revealed, namely, the maintenance of social order, the protection of property interests, the protection of personal reputation, and personal liberty. Through Jasper Orthwood's life, the treatment of the poor in small communities is set in sharp relief.

Anne Orthwood's Bastard was the winner of the 2003 Prize in Atlantic History, American Historical Association.
