Today is General John Stark Day, supposedly celebrating the Revolutionary War hero who coined New Hampshire’s state motto back in 1809, “Live Free or Die.” People often forget the rest of that quote: “Death is not the worst of evils.”
But, ackshually, these days, according to our Lockdown Overlords, guess it is.
I’m pretty sure General Stark would be turning in his grave today–you know, that place we will all end up. If YOU are suddenly so scared about dying… how are YOU living? You can read more about the history of General Stark Day here, and here, and I wrote this piece back in 2016 about yesterday’s Pine Tree Riots, when a bunch of “uppity slaves” rose against government overreach as testament to the spirit of independence, freedom, and the New Hampshire way of life.
