"But we want no excuse for the supposed mistakes of our ancestors. Let it first see it proved that they were mistakes. Till then we must hold ourselves obliged to them for the sentiments transmitted to us so worthy of their character, and so important to our security..." -- Samuel Adams (1722-1803), Essay in the Boston Gazette, 1771
