John Adams wrote home from Philadelphia shortly before signing the Declaration of Independence, and he said, “I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom, I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means – and that Posterity will triumph.”
