A Valedictory Discourse, Delivered Before the Cincinnati of Connecticut
This stirring address was given by David Humphreys, a Revolutionary War hero and diplomat, on the occasion of his departure from Connecticut in 1784. In it, he reflects on the meaning of the American Revolution, the challenges facing the new nation, and the importance of civic virtue in a democratic society. Humphreys' words are as relevant today as they were over two centuries ago, and this speech is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of American democracy.
