The unknown American soldiers who perished in the battles of Saratoga, September 19 and October 7, 1777 and were here buried in unmarked graves helped to assure the triumph of the war of independence to create the Republic of the United States of America and to establish liberty throughout the world.

There's a lot of voters who owe these men--and one woman!--an apology.

More later.

Thank you for the reminder of our roots and our connection to patriots of the past.

Ah, Liberty. Independence. Freedom. Let these words roll off your tongue. Taste them slowly, each a different summer berry. Then chant them over and over, like rubbing two sticks together or splitting a single match with an axe to make a small fire to warm yourselves. As your humble fire crackles, see other small fires in the distance, on the nearby hill, or across the lake. Liberty. Independence. Freedom. Keep them burning! You are not alone!
