"The foundation of our Empire was not laid
in the gloomy age of Ignorance and Superstition,
but at an Epoch when the rights of mankind
were better understood and more clearly defined,
than at any former period."
(1732-1799) Founding Father, 1st US President, 'Father of the Country'
Circular to the States, 1783, Ref: Our Sacred Honor, Bennett (379)
