"The world has seen no grander movement than that of our Revolution . . . ? The people, to a man, were full of a great and noble sentiment.

It is marvelous to see how many powerful writers, orators, and soldiers started up just at the time when they were wanted . . . all made to unite in the one object of establishing the freedom and independence of America
."

Nathaniel
Hawthorne
"The Whole History of Grandfather's Chair"

For the Centennial Celebration in 1875, a new bridge crossed the river to a new monument, "The Minute Man" by Daniel Chester French. The Minute Man stands today as a powerful symbol of our continuing struggle for liberty. He also embodies "a progress toward a true respect for the individual" - the evolving legacy of the Revolution.

"The progress from an absolute to a limited monarchy to a democracy, is a progress toward a true respect for the individual."
Henry David Thoreau
"Civil Disobedience"

"Every revolution was first a thought in one man's mind."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
