On American origins

“Where was there ever a confederacy of republics united as these states are…or, in which the people were so drawn together by religion, blood, language, manners, and customs?” – John Dickinson, Delaware delegate to the Philadelphia constitutional convention

“Quality of mind and body suggests that observance of ethnic law is as great a necessity to a nation as immigration law.” – Calvin Coolidge, “Whose Country Is This?” Good Housekeeping, February 1921

“Thicker than water in one rill,
Through centuries of story,
Our Saxon blood has flowed, and still
We share with you the good and ill,
The shadow and the glory.”
– John Greenleaf Whittier, 1874

“…Hengist and Horsa…the Saxon chiefs from whom we claim the honor of being descended, and whose political principles and form of government we assumed.” – Thomas Jefferson
