Our Union: It must be preserved

"Our Union: It must be preserved." - Andrew Jackson , President Jackson's toast at a Jefferson Day dinner, April 13, 1830.

On this day We the People gather to honor Our Nation, wherever We may be...

From lonely wastelands on foreign soil to Our own backyards.

We give honor and thanks to this Republic of Free People and pledge Ourselves once more to keeping it whole.

And give thanks to those that make such freedom possible, by guarding the Nation and giving those who oppose it reason to tremble in fear for denying that Free People shall be Free.

“Every good citizen makes his country's honor his own, and cherishes it not only as precious but as sacred. He is willing to risk his life in its defence and is conscious that he gains protection while he gives it.” - Andrew Jackson.
