Today's Founders Quote: The Tree of Liberty
"The eyes of the world being thus on our Country, it is put the more on its good behavior, and under the greater obligation also, to do justice to the Tree of Liberty by an exhibition of the fine fruits we gather from it."
- James Madison to James Monroe, 1824.
I always find letters between presidents to be interesting, especially from that time. It always lets us know that they were fully aware of the importance of America's success. One bit of fruity goodness? Faye Steinbeck's body... Yikes!
