Сторінка 106 - Beneath those rugged elms, that yew-tree's shade, Where heaves the turf in many a mouldering heap, Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, The rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.
Сторінка 90 - I pledge allegiance to my flag, and to the Republic for which it stands ; one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Сторінка 215 - Let our object be, OUR COUNTRY, OUR WHOLE COUNTRY, AND NOTHING BUT OUR COUNTRY. And, by the blessing of God, may that country itself become a vast and splendid monument, not of oppression and terror, but of Wisdom, of Peace, and of Liberty, upon which the world may gaze with admiration forever ! THE COMPLETION OF THE BUNKER HILL MONUMENT.
