One Hundred and Forty-Two Years
of Labor and Struggle
THE American people fought their first
battle for liberty and the rights of self
government one hundred and forty-two
(J At that time, and for many years thereafter,
their realization of their national aspirations and of
the goal toward which they were really striving
was vague and indistinct. But step by step they
struggled onward and upward toward a light which
grew dearer as their eyes and minds slowly opened
to its significance. Today, as a result of their strug
gles and their sacrifices, we possess and enjoy our
priceless American institutions.
fl These institutions must be preserved. The
structure so laboriously reared in these one hun
dred and forty-two years will be utterly destroyed
if we do not spring to its defense with every atom
of our energy and determination. This is not a
situation which may be trilled with, or evaded, or
put off. It is one which must be met now today
no matter what sacrifices it may entail, or what
the cost may be.
