Children Cry for
THE LESSONS OF '76
BY JUNIUS HENRI BROWNE.
Middle aged m in mast remember how
very different ihe celebration of the
Fourth of July 1 vas during their boy
hood from -vrhal it is in theso days.
Everything of c 'urse seems tame after
maturity in cont-ast with its seeming in
our early teens.
The civil war, .vith its terrible tension,
solicitude, agitation, uncertainty, made
the youngest of i is feel old.
But, apart frt m age and event, the
Fourth has in itt observance long ceased
to be what it wa s before the war. That
great strife natn -ally dwarfed the minor
bnt not less heroic struggle of the last
century and ren lered us comparatively
indifferent to its commemoration. We
should still remember, however, that
our independence was won by trials, by
hardships, by t nflinching fortitude, to
which in our lat ?r abundance and pros
perity we were r ecessarily strangers.
In this geneiation we can scarcely
realize, so alter d are our .surroundings,
what our foref ithers endured, suffered
and dared, as colonists, in taking up
arms against tl e exactions and oppres
sions of the mot her country one of the
strongest goven ments and greatest pow
ers of the Old World. They did not
hesitate to opj ose regular, disciplined
soldiers, who hn .1 fought on many fields,
with raw ret ruirs, having no other weap
ons than such :is they could get in an
emergency, and no other hope than that
inspired by loe of freedom, and thf
resolution to re ist tyranny to the death.
Those were in leed the times to test
courage and pi triotism, and the hardy
colonists never winced or faltered.
It is pleasai t to recall the ringing
words of Patr ck Henry at the begin
ning of the tr tides, when ho declared
at the old Continental congress in Phila
delphia, in 177- : 'British oppression has
effaced the 1ki ndaries of the colonies.
The distincrio is between Virginians,
New Yorkers, Pennsylvanians and New
Englanders arc no more. I am not a Vir
ginian; I am an American!" The seven
arduous, often desperate, years of the
Revolution, in which we were so gener
ously aided bj the French, proved the
stuff we were i lade of. Always without
money, often vithout food or clothing
or any proper quipment for war, Wash
ington sustain- d defeat after defeat with
equanimity an 1 unfailing courage, and
won his cause it last at Yorktown. De
feat and disaster never diminished his
faith in ultima te triumph or dampened
his excessive ardor. Within three
months, during 1780, two American
armies, numerous for that day, were
destroyed, am) the most formidable of
the partisan 1 ands in the south, under
Sumter, was dispersed by Tarleton.
Nevertheless a detachment from Corn
wallis' forces was wholly defeated in
North Caroliti , at King's mountain, by
000 of our miliia, and 1,100 of the enemy
were killed, wounded and captured.
Thus failure a id success alternated until
the final and complete victory gained by
the surrender of Cornwallis, with more
than b.OOO mei, including sailors.
Our troops raised during the Revolu
tion uumlerec I some 230,000 Continental
soldiers and '.0,000 militia. How small
this force st ems, compared with the
grand armies the north and south mar
shaled in 16: -o; how insignificant the
cost of life an 1 treasure then to the esti
mate in the U ter struggle, of a loss of a
million cf men and more than a billion
of money. But in the civil war the
Union was immensely rich; it had un
limited credit ; we were provided with
every martia' requirement. In 1776-88
the gallant pi triots marched often over
frozen roads vith shoeless and bleeding
feet; fought while half famished and
half clad; left their plows in the furrow;
quitted the h irvest with scythes in their
hands to give their lives, if need be, for
independence. They were intrepid sons
of intrepid si -es; they were genuine grit,
of unconquerable stock.
Too inuch wnor cannot be paid them.
We, their descendants, should always
keep their i lemory green. Their ex
ample should never be permitted to
grow dim. We should not allow the
celebration f the glorious Fourth to
languish. W ) owe it to them to keep it up
as we did in the earlier days, when we
were boys. We are boys now, though
of an older s rt; we should be boys in
our enthusia sm and rejoicing over the
immortal dav that disclosed the spirit of
1776, comnii inorativ"; of the stern pe
riod that ptv us to the proof , that tried
us by fire ir the crucible of adversity
and brought us out pure gold.
Let us observe the Fourth as afore
time, with wufires and illuminations,
with music ind cannon, with fireworks
and reading the Declaration, with large
assemblies ind patriotic speeches, with
every form of sympathy and demon
stration beh nging to the day and de
serving of o irselves.
