“If the genius of such authors as Homer and Virgil, could

aggrandize events, even in those limited times, of no great

moment in the eyes of the historian, so as to render them

immortal in the memory of mankind, by the ‘magic of song,’ how much the more

should this sublime incident of our own times, the AMERICAN

REVOLUTION, awaken genius, and enable it to

transmit to posterity, in all the solidity of philosophy, and the beautiful colorings of poetry, this STORY OF FAME, this real revolution…” -Philip

Freneau, 1797
