The Tree of Liberty; Madison and Jefferson

"The eyes of the world being thus on our Country, it is put the more on its good behavior, and under the greater obligation also, to do justice to the Tree of Liberty by an exhibition of the fine fruits we gather from it." --James Madison, letter to James Monroe, 1824

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it's natural manure." --Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, Paris, 13 Nov. 1787
