Description

Excerpt from The Era and the Apostles of Self-Government: An Oration, Delivered Before the New-England Society of Louisiana, December 22, 1848 Is any ancestry on earth more sublimely elevated than that of N ow England? Greater than kings were our brave and good old fathers. They have imprinted their thoughts and characters so deeply upon the age in which they lived that three quarters of a century have not dimmed a line or ed'uced a vestige. Like the fabulous Indian legend of the leap of the great bull mammoth after he had shaken cd' the avenglng thunder bolts of the great Great Spirit, enraged at his de struction of the warrior tribes, and beasts, and forests - his leap over the great lakes, leaving his foot-prints in the un wasting rock from which he sprang, so our fathers left their mighty track behind them, stamping the age. This was the era, and this the mission of the apostles of self-government. New England was the theatre of the great drama of freedom.
