“The adjacent shores resounded with the alternate shouts of the sons of liberty and the groans of their parting spirits.”
William Apess, On Our Own Ground: The Complete Writings of William Apess, a Pequot

“You and I have to rejoice that we have not to answer for our fathers’ crimes, neither shall we do right to charge them one to another. We can only regret it, and flee from it, and from henceforth, let peace and righteousness be written upon our hearts and hands forever.”
William Apess, Eulogy on King Philip

“We want trumpets that sound like thunder, and men to act as though they were going to war with those corrupt and degrading principles that rob one of all rights, merely because he is ignorant, and of a little different color. Let us have principles that will give every one his due; and then shall wars cease, and the weary find rest.”
William Apess, Eulogy on King Philip
